This article presents a comprehensive career assessment model for working with persons with disabilities. This model includes the use of a comprehensive assessment of aptitudes, achievement, vocational interests, career maturity, and career-related self-efficacy as well as vocationally relevant medical, psychological, and vocational information. Finally, a process to integrate the information for use in career counseling is proposed. This process includes the use of a computerized transferability of skills analysis and job matching system to integrate the information and generate a listing of potential avenues for career exploration.
