The Life Launch Assessment consists of seven evaluation areas designed to help the student understand their attributes and make use of recommendations provided:
- Cognitive ability: how the student processes the verbal, perceptual, working memory and visual-motor skills required for learning and classroom performance
- Academic achievement: assessment of the reading, math, written language and listening comprehension skills needed for higher learning success
- Executive function: how the student regulates their emotions and problem solving skills to plan, organize, start and complete tasks
- Learning styles: how the student works best in various environments, social conditions, times of day and other sensory preferences best for learning
- Attention skills: features of attention deficit are screened and recommendations made
- Personality traits: understanding one’s innate or “biological personality” can be valuable for selecting a career that will be socially and emotionally compatible

Having the student understand the above areas can provide information, direction, reassurance and encouragement as they prepare for future ventures.
