Upcoming VECAP VEW’s

December 2020:

Title: Brain Injury and Vocational Evaluation.

Description: Individuals with brain injury (BI) face many challenges (physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, and psychological) when attempting to return to work and reintegrate into their communities. Unemployment is high among individuals with TBI, with estimates of only 30-70% returning to competitive employment. Limited specific evidence-based guidelines exist for return to work for adults with TBI and such guidelines are needed for vocational evaluation (VE).  A recent analysis and synthesis of process and factors relevant to TBI by has identified key processes that are important for a thorough and rigorous VE.  This presentation will present key processes and factors evaluators should consider when requesting and reviewing a VE for clients with TBI.

Learning objectives:

  • Discuss factors that influence return to work for individuals with TBI
  • Discuss historical and current trends in vocational evaluation (VE) for individuals with TBI
  • Discuss processes that should be followed while performing a VE and reviewing a VE report
  • Discuss factors that evaluators should consider when performing VEs
