Assessments


Reasons for Assessments.

    Assessments may be requested from employers, insurers, attorneys, individuals, or referring specialists to determine:
  • Ability to meet job demands as part of a hiring process
  • Ability to meet own or reasonable alternative occupation as part
    of claims investigation
  • Disability status in terms of disability equity legislation
  • Assessment of incapacity in terms of labour legislation
  • Return to work status
  • Suitability to rehabilitation programmes





Types of Assessments.

  • Functional Capacity Evaluations; This is a systematic method of measuring the ability to perform meaningful tasks on a safe and dependable basis. It generally includes assessment over three hours.
  • Screenings; This is a less costly, streamlined version of the traditional functional capacity evaluation tailored to the case requirements. It allows for an appropriate baseline for further management and can be used to progress rehabilitation, further employer discussions or assist with vocational planning.
  • Situational Assessments; This includes worksite visits for job demand analyses and investigations into reasonable accommodations, home visits for activity of daily living measurements, as well as social settings for social anxieties.
  • Multiday Assessments; Occasionally assessments must be performed over more than one day to consider the fluctuating nature of a condition or post-exertional impairment.
