Direct Assistance to Clients and Families

I provide vocational services to impaired individuals. These services include vocational testing and evaluations, plan development and job placement.

In addition, I provide medical and case management services for catastrophically impaired children and adults.

Vocational Evaluation/Earning Capacity Analysis

I have performed vocational assessments and loss of earning capacity analyses on children and adults over the last 20 years. This involves determining economic losses stemming from disability. This process includes determining the level of a child's or an adult's vocational capacity, both before and after an injury.

Vocational Testing

As warranted, the vocational assessment includes the administration of vocational testing. The selection of specific vocational testing is predicated on the functioning levels of the individual.

This office has a number of test batteries including intelligence and cognitive, along with various achievement, aptitude, personality, and interest testing.

Life Care Planning

I am a Life Care Planner certified by the International Commission on Health Care Certification (ICHCC). Life care planning is utilized in a variety of health care and legal settings to provide information regarding the cost of services related to long term care. The life care plan is a collaborative effort which reflects rehabilitative and preventive goals.

The definition of life care planning as outlined in the Standards of Practice by ICHCC is stated as follows:

The life care plan is a dynamic document based upon published standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, data analysis and research, which provides an organized, concise plan for current and future needs with associated costs for individuals who have experienced catastrophic injury or have chronic health care needs.
