The Carolina Curriculum for Preschoolers with Special Needs

The Carolina Curriculum for Preschoolers with Special Needs is designed for use with children in the 24 to 60 months developmental range who have mild to severe special needs. It is a criterion-referenced system that links assessment to intervention and includes jargon-free, logical teaching sequences with specific curricular intervention strategies. The CCPSN is similar in structure to the CCITSN. The opening chapters of the book discuss the approach and principles of CCPSN, highlight changes from the previous edition, and offer instructions on how to use the curriculum. Most of the book outlines the 22 teaching sequences, which are clustered into five areas: cognition, communication, social/adaptation, fine motor, and gross motor. Every sequence is introduced with a short description and special adaptation ideas for children with motor, vision, or hearing impairments. This volume overlaps with the third edition of CCITSN at the 24 to 36 months levels, which will provide an easier transition between the two curricula than in previous editions.

"Very helpful to me as an early intervention service coordinator. I have used the training I received and the manual to assist families in developing and completing IFSP outcomes for families, and used this as a monitoring piece for parents to see how their child is making progress."--Michelle Isaacs"Early Intervention Service Coordinator, CDSA of the Blue Ridge, NC" (08/05/2008) "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
