Rehabilitation Specialists participate in diagnostic evaluations and provide assessment of strengths, preferences, functional impairments, and symptoms of psychiatric and/or co-occurring disorder(s) at regular intervals to ensure optimal and personalized services. Frequent service coordination with external and internal providers is necessary to support individuals in achieving independent functioning.
Rehabilitation Specialists may provide all or some of the following: deliver therapeutic interventions fostering skills necessary to manage symptoms, obtain/maintain employment or housing, or to obtain services such as school, medical care, nutritional assistance, financial assistance, transportation, legal assistance, and resources fulfilling any basic need. Rehabilitation Specialists may also facilitate psychosocial rehabilitative skills training groups and/or utilize other evidenced-based interventions or therapeutic modalities.
