Visual Supports Interest Inventory
What educators are saying
This Student Interest Inventory is designed for students with moderate to severe disabilities, non-readers, and students who need pictoral text/picture symbols (Boardmaker, News 2 You, Proloquo2Go, etc.) to learn or communicate. This is an informal assessment to help you determine a student's strengths, preferences, and interests as part of Transition Planning and developing the Individual Transition Plan (ITP) part of the IEP.
This interest inventory covers the following Transition domains: strengths and interests, employment and job skills, continuing education and training, independent and supported living, community involvement, and recreation and leisure. Directions on how to give the assessment are included (teacher/staff can read the questions and use the pictures with each choice to help explain the concept, students can circle their answers, point, use an AAC device to answer yes/no, etc.)
