The SCERTS ® Model provides a framework for improving communication and social-emotional abilities in preschool and primary school students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and their families. Developed by internationally recognized experts, SCERTS ® supports developmental progress in three areas: Social Communication, Emotional Regulation, and Transactional Supports. This two-volume manual set will give early intervention professionals comprehensive and practical guidance on using SCERTS ® in assessment and intervention.
Volume I: Assessment gives detailed background information on The SCERTS ® Model and guides professionals through the assessment process. Assessment report and observation forms are included to help collect information and monitor child progress.
Volume II: Program Planning & Intervention gives early interventionists explicit instruction on how to help children reach their goals following assessment. In-depth vignettes on diverse children and families illustrate implementation of the model, and forms are included to help with intervention planning.
Semi-structured yet flexible enough to respond to individual differences, SCERTS ® can be applied in many different settings and used with other intervention approaches.
