The behavior identification format was developed as an aid for the observation, identification, and recording of work and work-related behavior which may limit or enhance the employment opportunities of the vocational rehabilitation client. A rating system consists of a series of judgements which are made regarding the client's behavior as they relate to employment. Its primary concern is to determine if the client's existing work behavior interferes with his ability to hold a job in competitive or sheltered employment. The three rating classifcations are A (acceptable), B (selective placement), and C (change needed)--each subdivided into two or more precise categories. The behavior identification form is divided into 22 categories with space for comments on behavior and for the rating. The categories provide guidelines for the observation and identification of specific behaviors. A definition is provided of each category which includes examples of important situational variables which influence behavior, and examples of ways in which behavior problems may be displayed.
