- The Carolina Curriculum for Infants and Toddlers with Special Needs (CCITSN)This jargon-free curriculum is an assessment and intervention program designed for infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers with mild to severe special needs and is backed by more technical data than almost any other curriculum.
Age Range: 1 to 3
The Carolina Curriculum for Infants and Toddlers with Special Needs (CCITSN) is designed for the assessment and teaching of children with mild to severe special needs from birth to 36 months' developmental age.
The volume first takes users step-by-step through the assessment process — from setting up to scoring and charting assessment results — with a sample Assessment Log (available separately in packages of 10).
The curriculum itself is divided into 24 logical teaching sequences covering five developmental domains: cognition, communication, social adaptation, fine motor, and gross motor. Once the initial assessment is complete, professionals select curricular items that correspond to each child's special needs.
Each curricular item follows the same format: title, objective, materials needed, teaching procedures, routine integration strategies, and sensorimotor adaptations. The uncomplicated format and jargon-free language make CCITSN easy to use and easy to share with families.
