View our recorded webinar: presented by Susan Attermeier. UsingThe Carolina Curriculumis simple. In each of the age-specific volumes—now reorganized to establish a seamless transition between the two—all the areas to be assessed are clearly laid out in logical sequences in anAssessment Log.A professional observes the child playing with familiar toys and other available materials in a naturalistic environment, and caregivers may or may not participate. After all appropriate activities in each sequence have been observed or attempted, professionals and caregivers examine the strengths and weaknesses revealed during assessment, pinpoint items that need the most work, and select from the teaching activities that correspond to the items in each sequence of theAssessment Log. CCITSNincludes 24 logical teaching sequences covering five developmental domains: personal-social, cognition, communication, fine motor, and gross motor. Curricular sequences each consist of an introduction that explains why that sequence is important; suggested adaptations for children with visual, motor, and hearing impairments; and a list of behaviors associated with that sequence. For each behavior, users get a criterion that pinpoints the objective, a list of suggested materials for eliciting that behavior, procedures that help, and functional activities for encouraging that behavior within the child's daily routine. Appendices cover play and children with motor impairments, using object boards for teaching children with motor impairments, and more. This book is part ofThe Carolina Curriculum,a bestselling assessment and intervention program designed for children birth to five with mild to severe disabilities. With this easy-to-use, criterion-referenced system, professionals who work with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers will closely link assessment with intervention and work effectively with the child's teachers, family members, and other service providers.
