    Description & More Details

    Volume 1



    Much more than just a measurement tool, the activity-based, field-tested Assessment, Evaluation, and Programming System for Infants and Children (AEPS) links assessment, intervention, and evaluation for children from birth to six years who have disabilities or are at risk for developmental delays. With this reorganized, extensively updated second edition, you can assess and monitor six key developmental areas in young children: fine motor, gross motor, cognitive, adaptive, social-communication, and social. AEPS helps identify educational targets tailored for each child's needs, formulate developmentally appropriate goals, conduct before and after evaluations to ensure interventions are working, and involve families in the whole process.

    This administration guide includes a "quick start" section that makes AEPS easier for new users; instructions on collecting data and translating test results into IFSP/IEP goals and objectives; and guidelines for involving families, fostering team collaboration, and linking assessment, intervention, and evaluation. Appendices detail the psychometric properties of AEPS and include reproducible data recording forms. Age Focus: 0-6. Spiral, 336 pgs.

    Also available: AEPS Test for Birth to Three Years and Three to Six Years, AEPS Curriculum for Birth to Three Years, and AEPS Curriculum for Three to Six Years.

     
  • Assessment, Evaluation, and Programming System (AEPS) Test for Birth to Three Years and Three to Six Years

    Description & More Details

    Volume 2



    The Assessment, Evaluation, and Programming System (AEPS) Test allows you to gather assessment data for one child or a group of children in home- or center-based settings. The tests for both age levels are divided into six developmental areas-fine motor, gross motor, cognitive, adaptive, social-communication, and social. Each area is subdivided into a progression of skills:

    • strands of general skill areas
    • goals made up of skills in those areas
    • objectives made up of smaller skills that build up to the goals

    While children and their caregivers engage in everyday activities, you assess each developmental area using the AEPS data recording forms. Each item is scored with a 0 (does not pass), 1 (inconsistent performance), or 2 (passes consistently). To supplement and clarify these scores, you choose from five qualifying notes and use the blank space provided for more specific comments. With this multipart scoring process-and the input caregivers add with the revised Family Report-the AEPS Test lets you pinpoint what children can do, identify areas that need attention, and use that information as a starting point to develop individualized IFSP/IEP goals and objectives. Age Focus: 0-6. Spiral, 304 pgs.

    Description & More Details

    Volume 3



    Used after the Assessment, Evaluation, and Programming System (AEPS) Test is completed and scored, this developmentally sequenced curriculum allows you to match the child's IFSP/IEP goals and objectives with activity-based interventions-beginning with simple skills and moving on to more advanced skills. Because the AEPS Curriculum for Birth to Three Years uses the same numbering system as the AEPS Test, you can easily locate activities in the curriculum that correspond to specific goals and objectives identified with the test.



    You will find:
    • guidelines on designing and implementing intervention
    • specific activity-based instructional sequences for each developmental area
    • teaching considerations and suggestions for each area
    • recommendations for environmental arrangements
    • strategies for incorporating the activities into the child's daily routine

    Flexible and easy to use, this age-appropriate curriculum can be tailored to each child's needs and is equally suitable for use in homes, preschools, or child care settings. Age Focus: 0-3. Spiral, 512 pgs.
