A Comprehensive Psychological Assessment for Accommodations in the Workplace
If you need accommodations in the workplace for a mental health condition, we’ve got you covered. If you’re not meeting deadlines, getting feedback about poor attention to detail, or just can’t get the energy to do the work, you may qualify for accommodations.
How long does it take?
Most clinics make you wait 8-12 months for your appointment and then another 3 months for the report. DCNE can get you in much faster and your report gets back to you much shorter than 3 months! We don’t think you should have to wait that long. Of course, there are sometimes where there are delays, but our turnaround time is much faster.
How do I use the report at work?
A Human Resources department needs to be pushed to give you accommodations. You can do that by having the evidence you need. The evidence will support your request for accommodations.
The strongest form of evidence that DCNE can provide is a comprehensive psychological evaluation. A comprehensive psychological assessment for accommodations in the workplace is a thorough evaluation of your cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning in relation to your work environment. It is typically conducted by a trained and qualified mental health professional, such as a Testing Therapist, a Social Worker, or a Psychologist.
What is included in this process?
A good comprehensive psychological assessment for accommodations in the workplace should include the following elements:
- Standardized testing: Standardized tests are objective measures that are administered and scored in a standardized way. They can help to provide an accurate assessment of an individual’s cognitive functioning and can be used to identify any areas of strength or weakness that may impact their ability to function in the workplace. Some examples of standardized tests that may be used in a comprehensive psychological assessment for accommodations in the workplace include the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) and IVA-2 – Evaluate Visual and Auditory Attention.
- Clinical interviews: Clinical interviews involve a structured conversation between DCNE’s Testing Therapist and you. They provide information about your symptoms and how you are affected in the workplace.
- Observations: Observations involve the mental health professional observing your behavior and functioning in various settings, such as during a structured task or in a more natural setting. Observations provide valuable information that can help confirm or refute any mental health concerns.
- Collateral information: Collateral information refers to information gathered from other sources, such as family members, supervisors, or other healthcare professionals. This type of information provides valuable insight into how you’re doing and helps to inform the assessment.
