Testimonials


…I think the Paint with Colors is a great tool for career exploration with children. My students enjoyed using it, and I plan to use it in when I teach the Career Counseling course again next summer. Thank you for making it available…

From: Dr. R. B. Palmer, Ph.D., Counseling Psychology Department, Eastern University

The children’s version is simpler to understand and use than other interest inventories I have reviewed… The pictures are clear, informative and stimulate career exploration and conversation.

From: A. Eubanks, Vocational Services Program Manager, Stanford Home for Children

We used all three of your wonderful career training materials Paint with Colors, Picture Inventory Codes, and Holland’s Self Directed Search for children in K-12 settings in mainland China and met with tremendous success! Our company InterLangua was asked to establish Career Guidance with the YuCai Group Education Consortium (Shenzhen). Prior to this, Chinese families in the school would get together and decide what would interest their child. There was little formal exploration and matching of interests and abilities, rather, a seemingly rote list of jobs and titles that were typical and practical.
