Purpose: Provide an assessment and intervention program designed for infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers with mild to severe disabilities
Age: 0-5 years
Time: 60-90 minutes (can be split into two sessions)
The Carolina Curriculum is an assessment and intervention program designed for use with young children from birth to five who have mild to severe disabilities.
Professionals in home-, school-, or centre-based environments will improve children’s outcomes by systematically using this easy-to-use, criterion-referenced system that clearly links assessment with intervention and lets them work closely with the child’s teachers, family members, and other service providers.
In each of the age-specific volumes, all the areas to be assessed are clearly laid out in logical sequences in an Assessment Log. Each item on the assessment tool is linked directly to a curriculum item that describes procedures for teaching the assessed skill.
Assessment is linked to intervention through hierarchies of developmental tasks that are both relevant to typical routines and pertinent to long-term adaptation—thus integrating the intervention in a meaningful way into the child’s life.
The Carolina Curriculum for Preschoolers with Special Needs 2nd ed. (CCPSN) and Carolina Curriculum for Infants and Toddlers with Special Needs 3rd ed. (CCITSN) consist of logical teaching sequences covering five developmental domains:
- Fine motor
- Gross motor
Assessment Logs and Developmental Progress Charts are available on the CD-ROM.
