To set an appointment, call 832.777.7464.

family counseling

You want the best for your student but there may be some unanswered questions. Your family and your counselor can explore what is impacting your student’s success. If further evaluation would help, Accessible Career will provide you local referrals to testing professionals. Your counselor will work with your family to explore options, work on specific skills to increase success, and monitor progress. When your student has met their goals, you and your counselor will discuss follow up options.

workplace skills coaching

Sometimes your disability causes difficulties in the workplace due to social demands, stress, and long work hours. You and your counselor will set some skills goals such as assertiveness, setting limits, and clarifying communication. You both can work on requesting accommodations. You may work on those skills to improve your enjoyment of your workplace and help you feel more competent. You both will track your progress until you can practice those skills independently.

consultations with other professionals

Accessible Career counselors can consult with those that provide testing, teachers, university counselors, doctors, and workplace professionals only if you provide a specific release of information. However, sharing information can accelerate your progress in certain cases.

exit planning

In the rare circumstances that you are unable to continue working due to your condition, you and your counselor can discuss options available.  Typical places to get support include Social Security, Texas Workforce Commission, TIRR, and the Veterans Administration. You and your counselor can also decide if returning to school, self-employment, freelancing, or starting a (part-time) business is right for you.

referral for assessment

When additional information is needed, your counselor may suggest an updated evaluation. Understanding how it impacts you today is critical to providing you the best care. You counselor will provide you options and inform you of ways to get the testing done for a reduced price or through your school or state agency.
