The Situational Assessment Program provides a systematic approach to assessing vocational aptitudes and work skills of an individual by using "real work" settings and tasks. The setting is provided through one of our facilities or store locations or by a community-based business employer who allows us the use of their facility for the assessment. Assessments are used to determine an individual's ability to work independently, follow instructions and established procedures, interact with co-workers and supervisors, and to identify work skills and preferences. The usual duration of an assessment is five to ten days and during the assessment the participant participates in a series of work environments and assignments. The assessment is a combination of real work environment situations and developed situational settings. The assessment usually involves a 50/50 mix of both. Participants are paid at minimum wage for all real work assignments. A job coach works closely with the individual throughout the process: modeling job skills, collecting information and monitoring work behaviors. The overall purpose of the program is to provide recommendations for the next steps for the individual's success.
