Basic training is designed to provide basic content knowledge and fundamental skills in the administration, scoring and interpretation of the McCarron-Dial System including the Street Survival Skills Questionnaire (SSSQ). It focuses on the vocational evaluation of clients/students above the age of 15 who are served by rehabilitation workshops and work activities centers or by prevocational/vocational training programs in school settings. The interpretation section presented on the third day includes a detailed and systematic process of developing Individual Program/Education Plans. This workshop is appropriate for the practitioner in vocational/prevocational evaluation, placement and/or work adjustment training. MDS Certification is based on the competency exam score and evaluation of "hands-on" skills.

Note: Commitment to receive training is required for all purchasers of the McCarron-Dial System.

Basic Vocational Evaluation workshops focus specifically on the McCarron-Dial System. Training for the Comprehensive Vocational Evaluation System (CVES) for the Blind and Visually Impaired is conducted by Dr. Jack Dial. Please call 972/541-0818 for a schedule of CVES trainings.
