Arkansas Rehabilitation Services (ARS)

Psychological Services

Psychological Services is an evaluation service designed to assist Arkansas Rehabilitation Services (ARS) counselors with client eligibility. Psychological Services is comprised of two programs, RIDAC (Rehabilitation Initial Diagnosis and Assessment for Clients) and LEC (Learning Evaluation Center), that provide a range of psychological assessments to ARS clients across the state. Program personnel include licensed psychological examiners and, ideally, a psychologist or neuropsychologist.

RIDAC personnel travel the state conducting screening assessments as part of the process for ARS client eligibility. The screening assessments are designed to confirm or deny a previously established diagnosis, identify client strengths and weaknesses, and identify any accommodations needed to promote academic or vocational success. Assessments are conducted in 28 cities across the state from Fort Smith to Fayetteville to Texarkana to West Memphis to El Dorado to Monticello and many cities in between. 

LEC personnel conduct individual comprehensive assessments as part of the process for ARS client eligibility. A comprehensive assessment is utilized when available records that document the client’s disability are outdated, previous test results are unclear, or when no formal diagnosis has ever been established. Additionally, a client might be referred for a comprehensive assessment as a result of a medical condition (stroke, head injury, etc.). LEC reports are utilized by both 2-year and 4-year colleges as well as technical and trade schools in order to provide appropriate accommodations in academic and vocational settings.

Psychological Services provides evaluations for clients who wish to pursue ARS services. Referrals for assessment are generated by the Vocational Counselor. Referrals from outside the agency are not accepted.
