“The Voc-Ties program has proven to be a reliable instrument in helping me identify which career transition training program is most appropriate for my special students.”

Donna Jo Sulhany, New Start Services, PHD, CRC, CVE

"Since 2001, I have used the Skills Assessment Module to assess special individuals whose true abilities are assessed more accurately with hands-on samples rather than paper pencil – computer assessment."

Helena Hendrix-Frye, Special Populations Consultant for North/South Carolina, M. Ed., CVE

“I created the Learning/Working Styles to provide special Students with a nondiscriminating, age appropriate inventory that would reliably reveal an individuals’ academic, environmental and working style preferences.”

Sheila Gallagher, Transition Coord., Conrad Wieser High School

“For years I have used the Skills Assessment Module to help generate the I.E.P. documentation I need to identify students career-transition strengths and weaknesses.”
