Linked assessment and intervention for children with disabilities

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 center-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.

The Carolina Curriculum for Infants & Toddlers with Special Needs (CCITSN), Third Edition, is designed for use with children who are functioning in the birth to 36-month developmental range.

The Carolina Curriculum for Preschoolers with Special Needs (CCPSN), Second Edition, is designed for use with children in the 24–60-month range.

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.

  • provides a comprehensive picture of a child’s development
