About This Product
BY MARK L. SUNDBERG, PHD, BCBA-D
The VB-MAPP gives educators and parents an effective way to assess the learning, language, and social skills of children with autism or other developmental disabilities. Based on established developmental milestones and behavior analysis, the VB-MAPP is a criterion-referenced assessment tool, curriculum guide, and skill-tracking system. It provides a clear and accurate picture of the whole child, identifying barriers that impede learning and informing IEP development. The VB-MAPP Guide and Protocol include the following:
Milestones Assessment samples the child’s existing skills in 16 areas, measuring 170 milestones sequenced across three developmental levels (up to 48 months).
Barriers Assessment focuses on 24 language and learning impediments that may be preventing a child from mastering new skills.
Transition Assessment summarizes skills in 18 areas, indicating the child’s readiness to move to a less restricted educational setting.
Task Analysis and Skill Tracking analyzes 900 skills that support the milestones, providing a more detailed curriculum guide.
Placement and IEP Goals presents programming suggestions for each of the 170 milestones, establishing intervention, curriculum, and IEP goals that are measurable and meaningful.
All you need is one copy of the VB-MAPP Guide and a Protocol for each child.
