These assessments contain 31 questions relating to your socialization and communication skills. Basically, all of these questions have something to do with how you interact with others.
These assessments will help you accurately identify your own social strengths and weaknesses. In order to find a job that you are successful in and happy doing, it is important to know your strengths and weaknesses.
Then, you can look for jobs that allow you to use your strengths and work to improve your weaknesses. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses will also help you speak up for yourself once you get a job. You may have a better understanding of what type of strategies or accommodations may be helpful for you. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses will help you be a better self-advocate when finding, getting, and keeping a job.
There are three steps to this process:
Complete the Part 1 Self-assessment.
Have someone else who knows you complete the Part 2 Assessment.
Note: It can be helpful to have another adult complete this assessment. Although you know yourself well, it does not hurt to have someone else’s perspective and insight. That person may think about something you did not think of, and it may be interesting to see if others perceive you in the same way as you perceive yourself. Additionally, many people with ASD may have limited insight into social relationships, as this is one of the characteristics of ASD. So it can be helpful for someone to share their insights with you. Make sure that you ask someone who you trust and feel comfortable talking with.
