The Carolina Curriculum for Preschoolers with Special Needs, Second Edition is one of the two volumes of the The Carolina Curriculum, an assessment and intervention program designed for use with young children from birth to five years who have mild to severe disabilities. Developed for use with children from 24 to 60 months, the CCPSN is an easy-to-use, criterion-referenced system that clearly links assessment with intervention and lets professionals work closely with the child's teachers, family members, and other service providers. Already trusted by thousands of early childhood professionals from coast to coast, this proven system is even easier to use with the revisions and updates in this third edition.

Using The Carolina Curriculum is 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 an Assessment 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 the Assessment Log.

CCPSN includes 22 logical teaching sequences, covering five developmental areas: 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. This volume targets more advanced, age-appropriate behaviors and includes suggestions for group activities appropriate for preschools or child care centers.

This book is part of The 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.

"I find [Carolina Curriculum] very helpful when I want a more in-depth curriculum-oriented assessment than standardized testing can provide. I also sometimes go directly to the intervention activities when I need ideas for IFSP Outcome activities." --Lee Rouse
