The Vocational Evaluation Program is available to individuals with disabilities. A Vocational Evaluation at BEi is an individualized and interactive program designed to assess the individual’s employment potential, abilities, and needs. Assessments are made in the areas of job skills; work related behaviors, characteristics, attitudes, and preferences; job seeking skills; and social, community and personal living competencies. Information is obtained through individual counseling; hands on work experience in real jobs; and standardized work evaluation tests. Job sampling is an important part of every evaluation.
The individual works a few hours at local companies or businesses, trying out jobs in a vocation in which he/she is interested in working or that match his/her strengths and job-related preferences. At the end of the evaluation, the Vocational Evaluator meets with the individual and representatives from relevant agencies to present the results of the evaluation and make recommendations on actions to be taken to meet vocational goals. Individuals interested in this program can be referred by a Special Education Supervisor with the Warren County School District or a Vocational Counselor at the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation.
