About This Product
BY JAMES W. PARTINGTON, PHD, BCBA
The ABLLS™-R provides the tools you need to assess, instruct, and monitor children with autism or other developmental disabilities. It helps you identify deficiencies in language, academic, self-help, and motor skills and then implement and evaluate intervention.
The ABLLS-R includes two components: the Assessment Protocol and the Scoring Instructions and IEP Development Guide.
The Protocol provides precise, criterion-referenced information about a child’s existing skills and the conditions under which the child uses these skills. It also identifies weaknesses in motivation, attention, and other areas that prevent the child from learning new skills. Protocol scores can be used to develop an individualized curriculum with concrete, actionable educational objectives. Tracking grids, supplied with the Protocol, let you document the child’s progress in acquiring targeted skills. (Item by item, the Protocol lists any additional materials needed to assess each skill.)
The Scoring Instructions and IEP Development Guide explains scoring, skill tracking, and how to use information from the completed Protocol to develop an effective IEP.
