  • Work Skills

communication
COMMUNICATION:

…is a person’s ability to transmit and/or receive information through spoken, written or other non-verbal means. The emphasis is on limitations resulting from the disability-related communication difficulty, not from a communication problem resulting from language or cultural differences.

interpersonal skills
INTERPERSONAL SKILLS:

…are a person’s ability to establish and/or maintain personal, family or community relationships as they affect job performance. This could include appropriate and acceptable behavior, ability to cooperate in a team setting, understanding, and use of tact as they affect a person’s job performance and participation in work-related activities.

mobility
MOBILITY:

…is a person’s ability to move to and from home and work or within a work environment, access and use transportation, as well as use of spatial and perceptual relationships. This may include limitations in terms of distance and/or terrain that can be traveled.

self care
SELF CARE:

…is a person’s ability to independently perform activities of daily living, to participate in training or work-related activities, including eating, toileting, grooming, dressing, cooking, shopping, washing, housekeeping, money management and health and safety needs.

self direction
SELF DIRECTION:

…is a person’s ability to independently plan, initiate, problem solve, organize, or carryout goal directed activities.

work tolerance
WORK TOLERANCE

…is a person’s ability to fulfill the demands of the work place regardless of the work skills already possessed by the individual. Limitations may be due to physical disability, stamina, fatigue, effects of medication, or psychological factors.

work skills
WORK SKILLS

…are a person’s ability to perform specific tasks required to carry out job functions as well as the capacity to benefit from training in the necessary skills.

other functional capacity area
“OTHER Functional Capacity Area”
  • At this point, there has not been identified limitations that fit in to this category as a standard.
  • If you find unusual limitations that may qualify as “other”, discuss this with your Supervisor for clarification.
  • You must still address seriousness (aka: frequency, intensity, and duration).
2 vocational goal identification
2) Vocational Goal Identification
  • You and your counselor will work together to choose an appropriate job goal.
  • This goal must be consistent with your unique strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities, interests, and informed choice.
  • Your goal must be feasible and realistic.
3 individualized plan for employment ipe
3) Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE)
  • The IPE is a written plan that lists your job goal and the services deemed necessary to reach that goal.
  • The IPE must be approved before services can begin.
3 individualized plan for employment ipe continued
3) Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE) continued…
  • Only those services listed on the IPE will be provided. The plan may be amended, if needed, anytime throughout the vocational process.
  • No two rehabilitation programs are alike, but the goal is always the same - for the person with a disability to become gainfully employed.
