What do these psychological evaluations for disability involve?

Disability evaluations look at a variety of psychological factors that may include but are not limited to emotional stability or mood, memory, energy, emotional liability, cognitive impairments or psychosis. These evaluations consider if any of these factors may contribute to deterioration in an individual’s ability to engage in substantial, gainful employment and overall functioning. They will consider whether an individual has a restriction of activities of daily living, or have difficulties in maintaining social functioning with others, and/or deficiencies in concentration and persistence which may result in the failure to complete work tasks or have a substantial negative impact in work situations, which may cause an individual to withdraw from these situations.
