Who Uses the Communication Assessment Service?
Vocational rehabilitation counselors and human resource managers find our Communication Assessment service valuable for case documentation. Counselors unfamiliar with all the issues surrounding someone who is hard of hearing find the service invaluable in helping them choose the most appropriate accommodations to meet their client’s needs.
Even seasoned counselors find the information in the assessment helpful when dealing with complicated communication issues. It has been useful in providing third party recommendations to employers or documentation in a case.
Counselors who must choose clients based on order of selection find the assessment process helpful in the identification and documentation of the level of disability and impact the hearing loss has on successful employment outcomes, maintaining current employment and independent living.
Benefits of the Assessment Process:
- Gathering information in a systematic way ensures you obtain all the information in the same manner each time.
- Saves time by getting all the information the first time.
- Provides case documentation to help counselors save time.
- Functional and technical needs can be identified thoroughly and comprehensively.
