Employment-related Assessment and Counselling

This service will establish your best pathway to successfully engage in employment.

Employment-related Assessment and Counselling

Having a meaningful job impacts multiple aspects of your wellbeing. It can provide you with healthy self-esteem, enough money to live on, and a sense of purpose and belonging. You’re also more likely to have friendships and an optimistic outlook on life if you’re working.

Yet only just over half of working-age NDIS participants are employed (compared with 80 per cent of Australians of working age without disability), and many unemployed people who live with disability have trouble finding work.

Help with finding good work

AAAR Ability Assist can help you achieve greater wellbeing by supporting you to find work and achieve your employment goals, however long it takes.

Through the NDIS, we offer:

  • Vocational assessment/s
  • Vocational counselling


Delivered by fully qualified psychologists, this service will provide you with professional assessment/s and counselling to help identify suitable vocational goals for people living with disability and establish the best pathway to engage in employment.

Our service

Completed by our fully qualified psychologists, vocational assessments are available to NDIS participants who may need a greater level of support to develop occupational goals and a successful pathway to engage in meaningful employment.

The purpose of a vocational assessment is to analyse your transferrable skills, experience and qualifications, and to help identify your employment potential and career opportunities. Our psychologists will also consider any medical restrictions that may be in place, as well as any reasonable adjustments to increase your independence and maximise your capacity at work.

The assessments allow you to plan for your future, assisting with:

  • Vocational counselling and planning
  • Redefining your career goals
  • Exploring your purpose
  • Building emotional and mental resilience
  • Overcoming work challenges
  • Assessment tools supporting decision-making
  • Soft skills training
