YouScience is the solution for college planning. How many high school graduates have a firm grip on what their career or college plans are? I know college is not the answer for some of our kids with autism. What if there was a website that used games to determine what your child was good at then suggested a plan to achieve a job based on that?
YouScience gets your child to fill out a profile. After the profile part which I helped Logan with, there are a series of games. The games are designed to help determine your child’s aptitude in certain areas. Are they a science whiz? Is math their Kryptonite? (That would be me). How about some ideas about careers or jobs that they would be proficient in?
The initial assessment takes about 45 minutes to an hour . I had Logan do it as part of his school work . No expectations were set before he started. He simply was told to do the best job he could . He never got frustrated or needed to walk away from the program. He sat in his comfy chair the entire time until he finished . At that point, they send you an assessment telling you the student’s strengths within 24 hours.
YouScience was developed for high school juniors all the way up to college students. It’s main purpose is to help students make informed decisions about degrees and such. For autism families, I see it being useful for coming up with an independent living plan. A huge component of that plan will be a way for the person with autism to make an income. Having a good idea about what their income producing strengths are will be invaluable to the plan.
You want to know about cost. I would too if I were you. The current price is $29 on sale from $49. Not a bad price for a guideline of how to proceed with your life plan. It is fast , easy and usable information. A great idea for typical students as well as special needs ones. I would pay the full price for this piece of information. Apparently so would the state of Georgia as they recently purchased profiles for 20,000 sophomores in their school system.
