Center for Autism, Assertiveness & Social Skills (CAASS)

These are good resources for clients, but I cannot be responsible if they have changed since I last looked at them.  Assessments are only for informational/discussion purposes in therapy and should not be used solely for diagnosis/treatment.

Autism/Asperger’s Checklist

Females with Asperger’s Syndrome Unofficial Checklist– The best and most extensive checklist I have seen for figuring out if you have Autism/Asperger’s features. Print it off, answer yes or no, and take it with you to therapy to discuss it.  It works for both females and males, but geared to females.

Autism/Asperger’s Resources

Connecting with Your Asperger Partner– A great book for those with Autism/Asperger’s and there loved ones understanding (and often saving) loving relationships.

The Way I See It– Book by Temple Grandin with observations and practical advice about Autism and Asperger’s

Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships– Book by Grandin and Barron

Career Assessments

O*Net Career Assessment (Hubbard Code)– A venerable vocational assessment tool, find jobs that you might like

Occupational Outlook Handbook– Figure out what jobs will be in demand and which won’t from the Bureau of Labor Statistics

Personality Trait Assessments

Big Five Inventory (BFI) – A well researched tool to show your current personality traits

BFI- Star Wars Edition– The BFI with the added bonus of telling you what Star Wars character you are most like
