Helpful Entry Level Skills Checklist--Revised Manual [and] Helpful Entry Level Skill Checklist--Revised Edition.
Child Development Centers of the Bluegrass, Lexington, KY.
The Helpful Entry Level Skills Checklist was designed to assist preschool teachers in selecting functional skills that children (including children with disabilities) may need to make a successful transition into the public schools. These skills, for the most part, deal with attending, compliance, ability to follow directions, turn taking, ability to follow classroom routines and rules, and the ability to function independently. The entry level skills are those survival skills, or social and behavioral skills, that are necessary for a child to function successfully in the next school environment. The checklist is divided into sections for classroom rules, work skills, communication skills, social behavior skills, and self-management skills. The checklist is to be used as a guide for teaching young children skills that lead to independence, rather than as a prerequisite for entry into a public school program. A rationale for development of the checklist and instructions for administering the assessment are provided, in addition to a copy of the checklist. (JDD)
