Assessment and Job Placement (CRP)
The Assessment Unit
The assessment unit operates under UMID, providing Vocational Assessment and Vocational Evaluation for persons with disabilities
to increase positive and sustainable employment outcomes. In line with UMID’s Guiding Principles, assessments are person-centered
and systematic. Assessments are completed based on the referral questions of the Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor
and follow the Tennessee Vocational Evaluation and Testing protocol. The Assessment Unit’s services are not limited to
clients of our Career Development and Transition Programs. We welcome ALL Vocational Rehabilitation clients of VR to discover
and understand their potential role in the world of work.
The Job Placement and Sustainability Unit (JPSU)
The Job Placement and Sustainability Unit (JPSU) operates under UMID providing the
opportunity for the development of employability skills and securing employment for
persons with disabilities. The JPSU team works tirelessly to train clients for work
that aligns with each individual's hopes, talents and abilities. The program is not
exclusive to alumni of UMID programs but open to every individual with a disability
who wants to work. Through the development of skills to enhance employability and
matching qualified candidates with businesses we help clients discover the potential
for life-long work opportunities.
In keeping with the guiding principles of the Institute on Disability, we envision
a more diverse and inclusive future where all people are equipped with the skills
and free to be a contributing part of their communities. We at The Assessment Unit
hope to incite this change by working to empower those with disabilities and creating
opportunities for finding purpose in meaningful work.
