Adolescent Self-Perception Inventory (ASPI)

The ASPI is based upon the idea that success, defined as achievement and personal well-being, is within the grasp of any adolescent once specific executive functions, learning skills, psychological resources and personal strengths can be identified and supported. Delineating and assessing the specific skills and abilities that adolescents need to be successful , identifying any obstacles in their way and knowing what strengths they have to work with can be more helpful than determining whether the adolescent meets particular criteria of a mental health, attention or learning disorder.

The ASPI is a self-report measure for adolescents ages 12-22. It was developed to encourage honest introspection and self-report of specific executive functions, learning skills, psychological resources and personal strengths needed for academic achievement and personal well-being. The assuption is that a multiplicity of neurodevelopmental, social, learning, personal and community factors are needed for success. 

The ASPI was refined over a 5 year period with the participation of over 1,000 students and 150 psychologists, counsellors, principals and advisors in the US.

Uses of the ASPI

  • The ASPi can be part of a formal psychoeducational assessment
  • The ASPI can be a complement to behaviour rating scales that provide diagnostic information
  • The ASPI can be used by school/student counsellors or as part of advisory programmes
  • The ASPI can be used as a screening tool for classes or grades of students for early indentification of emerging problems or common concerns
  • The ASPi can be used as a tool for therapeutic relationship building
  • The ASPI can be used as a research or programme evaluation tool

The ASPI may be administered individually or in groups.
