These services, offered by Launching College Succes, are specifically designed for those students and parents with lots of questions, such as:

  1. Are my interests and strengths a good match for the career I’m considering?
  2. I don’t know what I want to study in college? Is there a test I can take that will provide me with some answers?
  3. Where do I start in looking for a college that is a good fit?
  4. When do I start this process?
  5. What if I didn’t do well in a couple of high school classes? Can I still get into _______ University?
  6. What if I want to take a year off after high school? Can I still go to college?
  7. I don’t know what I want to study in college. Can I go to school without having any idea about a major?

If you have asked yourself some of these questions, and others that aren’t on this list, then I have services that can help:

The Strong Career Interest Inventory assessment (In packages 2, 6, and 7).  One of the worlds’ most widely respected and frequently used career planning tools. It has guided thousands of individuals, from high school students to adults seeking a change, in their search for a rich and fulfilling career. If you elect to receive this service from LCS, you will be guided in taking the assessment. Once complete, you will receive a ten-page Strong Profile report, which matches the student’s strengths and interests with several careers.   In addition, you will receive the Strong Interpretive Report , which gives the student an in-depth interpretation and application of the Strong results, adding highly personalized information such as understanding aspects of your personality most closely associated with your career interests, understanding your preference for leadership, risk taking and teamwork, and determining your preferred learning environment.

Study Skills Questionnaire (In Package 5, and can be added to most packages) Designed to support the student in not only becoming aware of their current academic skills and study habits, but also in helping them, with thlearn-mistakese support of Dianne, to brainstorm and revise their skills to achieve optimum academic success.

Learning Styles Questionnaire (In Package 5)
Each of us learns differently. But few of us are conscious of how we learn. The learning styles questionnaire will support the student in becoming aware of their preferred learning style and, through discussion with Dianne, will provide the student with a list of strategies to optimize their learning style for academic success.
