    Hello Ana, I hope you are well. Regarding ITPs and vocational assessment, I stick to the RIASEC (realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising and conventional) personality inventory that matches select character traits to vocational areas. It is quick and easy and relates well to other information in my psycho ed reports. I also supplement with some informal tools and interview items (Jerome Sattler’s behavioral assessment handbook has some great transition, post-secondary, and activities of daily living inventories).

    However, there are several other instruments out there. This article has a great review of several tools and the overall process of transition assessment and planning:

    Let me know if you have any further questions!
