Strengths, Interests, & Preferences Checklists


There are three options below for you to choose from when you are talking about your student’s strengths, interests, and preferences:

The Strength, Interest & Preference Form is a useful document to help studentsScreenshot (205) determine their own strengths, interests, and preferences.  It is a conversational tool that can be used in many ways.  Best practice would be to have students choose their top 3 to 5 items in each section.  Or, it can be a useful talking point sheet for the teacher to use when helping the student consider what their strengths, interests & preferences are for their IEP and transition planning.

Screenshot (207)Another option to use to help determine the student’s strengths, interests, and preferences are by using the Secondary Student  Interview: Strengths, Interests, Preferences. This form has less options to choose from, but it can also be a good discussion starter to use with your students.   The main thing is to help your students see how their strengths, interests, and preferences impact their post-secondary expectation goal areas.

And the newest version is called the Middle School Strengths, Interests, and Preference Survey. It has a great easy to use checklist of options that can be used to get ideas generating for your students.
