Have your say: Specialized Assessments – How to use them in Employment Services

On September 15, the Centre hosted a two-hour online symposium on the use of specialized assessments in employment services. It was a collaborative presentation delivered by both clinicians and service providers.

Dr. Brenda Hogan, Dr. Hendré Viljoen and Ralph Cheeseman of Back in Motion, HeadWise Rehabilitation and Back in Motion Functional Assessments Inc. respectively reviewed several types of specialized assessments as well as practical information on maximizing their benefit. This overview was followed by case study presentations from Alejandra Dominguez of Vancouver Island Vocational Rehabilitation Services and Christine Buchanan of Open Door Group.

We would like to say a big thank you to our group of presenters who came together to make this online mini symposium a reality as well as all of those who attended. We are pleased to share the full recording below and invite you to view it along with the presentation materials and handouts provided by the clinicians.
