Goal Setting Tool for Adolescents and Adults (AAGST)

Published February 2020

Adolescents and adults on the spectrum are often asked to participate in the person-centred goal setting processes of organisations such as schools (during post-school transition planning), disability services and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). It can be difficult for some people on the spectrum to articulate their goals and prioritise their support needs.

This project aimed to develop and evaluate the Adolescent/Adult Goal Setting Tool (AAGST). The AAGST utilises a card-sorting process, to assist adolescents and adults on the spectrum to develop, prioritise and communicate their goals in a broad range of areas.
