the past. Jonathan's group home manager was supposed to accompany the claimant on his bus trip to
the office, but a last minute scheduling change forced Jonathan to get on the bus alone today. Given the
claimant's poor performance and unstable presentation during the interview, the examiner accompanied
the claimant out of the office at the end of the session. Assistance was provided in crossing the street
and helping the claimant get on the city bus. The bus driver was alerted that this man may need
assistance in getting off at his destination. The claimant was unable to provide an estimate of travel to

He complained that he used to get his "checks" for disability in the past, but he reportedthat no payments had been received recently. Jonathan was fearful that his mother may have beenreceiving his previous disability payments. The claimant's older brother reportedly had been receivingdisability benefits, and there were concerns expressed about his mother also keeping these payments forherself.

(Digits Forward) 4/16, 0 errors through 2 digits1 error at 3 & 4 digits2 errors at 5 digits (Digits Backward) 1/14, No results with 0 errors1 error at 2 digits2 errors at 3 digits November 05, 2010 CLAIMANT: 156332 Doe, Jonathan (Continued)
Scaled Score: 2 (Extremely Poor) Serial 3's - The claimant made the following calculations: 17, 12(error), 8(error), 6(error). The claimantcomplained that the task was "too hard." The claimant was asked to perform the following mental calculations: 4+8="12(slowly used his fingers)";13+19="42(error, slow)"; 6x7="I have no clue." Alphanumeric counting produced the following responses: a1, b2, very slow, c3, d4, f5(error), g6, h7, i8,struggled in his responding, j9, "I feel like such an idiot", began to cry. He said he was crying because "Idon't know anything and I think that people make fun of me." The trial was halted by the examiner.
Short-term memory was judged to be marginal. The claimant was able to remember the examiner'sname. In recall of other items that were presented he could recall only one item freely out of five. Theclaimant recalled two items with prompting. Delayed memory was marginal. The claimant again recalledthe examiner's name. In recall of other items that were presented he could recall only two items freely outof five. The claimant recalled one item with prompting. Immediate memory was judged to be extremelypoor based on digit span trials. Fund of general information was poor. Awareness of current events waspoor.
A sampling of the claimant's vocabulary indicated that Jonathan understood the meaning of some simplewords such as "wheel" but not "recover." He was able to define words of slightly greater complexity suchas "inhale" but not "contemplate." He was unable to define more complex words such as "aversion" or"perjury." Abstract reasoning was found to be poor. Jonathan could describe the similarities betweenfairly concrete items, such as, appetizer and dessert, but he was unable to interpret even basic proverbs,such as, the early bird catches the worm. Poor judgment was demonstrated on a variety ofcomprehension probes. As an example, when asked, "What would you do if you had a leaky faucet?"Jonathan was unable to provide a commonsense solution for fixing the leak. He was unable to explain how credit cards might cause problems for people.
When asked to draw various geometric shapes, Jonathan was able to make appropriate discriminationsbetween simple shapes, such as a circle, square, triangle, and cross. Discriminations between simplefigure sizes (dime compared to a quarter, larger versus smaller) were not difficult for this claimant. Hehad no difficulty in drawing slightly more complex and abstract shapes, such as a stop sign. Jonathanwas unable to copy intersecting geometric figures as presented by the examiner. The claimant failed tocorrectly draw the face of a clock with hour and minute hands positioned at 20 minutes to 10:00 o'clockas directed. Jonathan was not able to demonstrate adequate ability in completing a multiple-step taskinvolving drawing appropriate parallel lines across the page. Line quality for this claimant was rathercrude, with unsteady movement and poor figure closure. Spelling was accurate for the words stop and cross, but the word square was misspelled as "sqare" and triangle was incorrectly spelled as "trangle".
WECHSLER ADULT INTELLIGENCE SCALE - FOURTH EDITION On this administration of the WAIS-IV, Jonathan obtained the following composite scores: Perceptual Reasoning: Processing Speed: November 05, 2010 CLAIMANT: 156332 Doe, Jonathan (Continued)
Full Scale I.Q. Score: The following sub-test (**supplemental) scaled scores were obtained: VERBAL COMPREHENSION PERCEPTUAL REASONING Matrix Reasoning: **Figure Weights: **Picture Completion: Jonathan was very whiny and lethargic throughout today's administration of the WAIS-IV. He was oftenvery slow to respond and would easily give up, saying "I can't do that." Jonathan appeared emotionallyfragile and was easily distressed. During the Visual Puzzles sub-test, Jonathan's right hand was observed to be shaking, but the movements seemed more intentional rather than involuntary. Based upthe claimant's Full Scale I.Q. score of 52, Jonathan was found to be functioning in the low end of the MildMental Retardation range of intellectual ability.
On this administration of the Bender-Gestalt, the claimant performance was as follows: The claimant's drawings were placed on the page in a disorganized manner. Figure size was variableand use of space on the sheet was constricted. Line quality was poor, with excessive movement and poor figure construction. Frequently, Jonathan would complain that the figure was too hard to draw. Hewas encouraged to keep trying. The protocol was significant for Simplification, Retrogression, ClosureDifficulty, Motor Incoordination, and Impotence. Such findings were consistent with the claimant's lowlevel of functioning as found on formal ability testing.
The claimant would have difficulty in carrying out tasks at this level of complexity due to deficits incognitive functioning. Evidence supporting this opinion was found in the following assessment results:WAIS-IV findings of 52 Full Scale I.Q. (low end of Mild Mental Retardation range), difficulties on BenderGestalt consistent with low functioning, special education involvement throughout school, and extremelylimited employment history. In addition, there are other specific limitations in Jonathan's ability toconsistently sustain performance at this level. The claimant has a seizure disorder along with a history of November 05, 2010 CLAIMANT: 156332 Doe, Jonathan (Continued)
psychiatric symptoms requiring mental health treatment.
B. ASSESSMENT OF ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND, REMEMBER, AND CARRY OUT DETAILED At this level, the claimant's diminished functional capacity would still interfere with his ability to carry outdetailed tasks. C. ASSESSMENT OF ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND, REMEMBER, AND CARRY OUT SIMPLE ONE OR Given his presentation, Jonathan would have difficulty in carrying out simple tasks in a reliable andsustained manner. This claimant's only prior work experience had been as a janitor, but he was firedfrom this job after a brief tenure. His presentation today was also diminished by slow movement andunstable gait. He takes medications which seem to interfere with his motor control. D. APPROPRIATE INTERACTION WITH SUPERVISORS, CO-WORKERS, AND THE PUBLIC.
Jonathan presented today as a very immature and whiny young man. His mood was highly labile and heappeared to have low self-esteem. His low level of functioning would make him vulnerable tomanipulation by others. In his last and only job, the claimant was apparently fired due to fighting withother staff. Jonathan would have difficulty in his interactions with supervisors, co-workers, and especiallythe public.
The claimant was found to be low functioning and he exhibited consistent evidence of limitedconcentration throughout today's assessment. Jonathan was judged to have inadequate focus even on simple tasks. He would have difficulty in sustained performance and pace over the course of a typicalwork day.
296.80 Bipolar Disorder NOS Per History 300.00 Anxiety Disorder NOS Per History 307.89 Pain Disorder Associated With Both Psychological Factors and a GeneralMedical Condition 317 Mild Mental Retardation Low End of Range Claimant report of seizure disorder, high blood pressure, and pain (withmedications for treatment) Problems related to the social environment, Educational problems, Occupationalproblems, Economic problems, Other psychosocial and environmental problems Current GAF: 45 (lower with medical concerns)Highest GAF Past Year: 45 (lower with medical concerns) PROGNOSIS:
The prognosis for this claimant would appear to be rather poor. He was found to be very low functioning
throughout today's assessment. A notable concern for this claimant's performance was the role of his
medications. He indicated that his anti-seizure medications affected his performance, but with an
appropriate dosage, the anti-seizure medication would not typically result in such diminished
performance. Jonathan came in with paperwork showing he also has prescriptions for Oxycodone. The

CLAIMANT: 156332 Doe, Jonathan (Continued)
effects of Oxycodone would be more consistent with the sluggish responding reflected during today'sassessment. It is recommended that this claimant be referred to an appropriate medical specialist tofurther determine the degree of disability associated with his physical symptoms and medications.
The claimant was found to be very low functioning and he will require assistance in the management of
his personal finances, including any monetary benefits awarded to him. In the past, issues reportedly
arose with Jonathan's mother as the payee. An independent, third-party should be used for managing
Jonathan's monetary benefits.
