Environmental Work Assessment
An individual’s Level of abilities are many times dependent on environment variables (such as a slow versus a fast work pace, loud versus quiet surroundings, outdoors versus indoors). The EWA focuses on the client's responses to the variables in a work environment rather than on how the consumer performs the job.
The results of this assessment identify variables that affect the participant's ability to function at his or her full potential. When determining the most appropriate work environment for the client, you must consider the environmental conditions to which the consumer responds most favorably.
