Disability evaluations are designed for adults to evaluate the functional impact of a particular psychological or neurodevelopmental condition on independent living skills, vocational/work skills, and decision-making capacity. These evaluations can be an important component of guardianship determinations, as well as in making a determination of disability status for Social Security or other program eligibility.
