Occupational Therapy Work Rehabilitation Program
Returning to work after a life-changing injury or illness can be challenging. Since the 1960s Rancho’s Occupational Therapy Work Rehabilitation Program has been providing a supportive environment for persons with physical disabilities to address their job skills.
- Evaluation by an Occupational Therapist
- One-on-one exploration and development of school or work- related skills
- Functional Capacity Evaluation: a computerized assessment to determine if you can meet the physical demands of a specific job.
- Worksite Evaluation: an onsite observation of your workplace to see how well you can work and to recommend reasonable accommodations that may help you.
- Stepping Out: a ten-week program for persons recovering from brain injury or stroke who want to get back to doing meaningful and productive activities. Topics include setting goals, time management and community integration.
- Work Readiness: a six-week program to assess job skills, explore work interests, and help develop clear, realistic goals for returning to work or school.
- Rancho Works Enterprises: an eight-week program that provides the opportunity to build work skills and boost self-confidence in on-campus environments, including a cafe and a gift shop.
