Vocational Rehabilitation Services

Vocational Dynamics provides individualized services to help injured workers and persons with disabilities restore healthy, productive lifestyles through long-term gainful employment. Methods include:

 

Transferable Skills Analysis

 

Transferable skills encompass a person’s work history, education, training and experience. The level of transferability of a person’s skills to other jobs and work environments can be impacted by physical and psychological limitations. The results of a Transferable Skills Analysis can indicate what type of jobs a person can perform after consideration of work restrictions.

 

Employability and Labor Market Assessments

 

Employability Assessments are a useful tool when dealing with wage-loss issues, earning capacity issues, and litigated situations. An Employability Assessment may include a Transferable Skills Analysis and Labor Market Analysis. A Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor can complete a labor market analysis of any specific geographic area. The Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor may also take the probable jobs a person can perform as indicated by the results of the transferable skills, indicating how many of those jobs are available in a given geographic area, associated wages, and any other statistical information requested.

 

Job-Seeking Skills Training
