Vocational Assessment

The Vocational Assessment team helps guide people with disabilities to the potential careers or training programs that best suit them.

About the Vocational Assessment Program

Our Vocational Assessment evaluator administers tests to measure aptitudes, skill levels, abilities, job-related interests, work values and more. Tests are administered with a combination of electronic and non-electronic formats. A comprehensive report is submitted to the referral source for review with their client.

Before testing, our evaluator interviews each client to learn about their school and work history, disability status, family dynamics, and their own perceived limitations. This one-on-one approach helps ensure clients receive more precise employment recommendations, reducing job-related dissatisfaction and turnover rates.

DCF and Vocational Rehabilitation counselors use CPRF’s assessment program to help plan for the type of employment their clients could seek — including on-the-job training, vocational school and advanced degree programs.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I arrange an assessment for a client?

    Call our Vocational Assessment Evaluator at (316) 652-1507 or message us via our Contact page.

  • I’m interested in taking the Vocational Assessment. How does someone obtain this service?

    DCF and Vocational Rehabilitation counselors refer clients for services through their own eligibility process.

    If you are interested in taking an assessment, please contact the State of Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) to apply for services and request a referral to the CPRF Vocational Assessment program. Once a referral is received from DCF/Vocational Rehabilitation and accepted by CPRF, you will be contacted to schedule the appointment.

  • Is there a cost for the Vocational Assessment?

    There is a cost, but not to the participant. It is contracted for payment by the DCF/Vocational Rehabilitation counselor.

  • How long does it take to get an assessment completed?

    We can typically schedule the assessment within two weeks, depending on the availability of appointments.

    The assessment takes about four hours, working one-on-one at CPRF with the evaluator. We generate the report and send it to the DCF/Vocational Rehabilitation counselor within two weeks. The counselor then goes over the results with the participant.
