This first volume of the Assessment, Evaluation, and Programming System (AEPS) Test and its associated curriculum, describes the AEPS measurement components for the developmental range from birth to 6 years. Chapter 1 provides a comprehensive description of the AEPS Test and chapter 2 discusses linking assessment, goal development, intervention, and evaluation. An example is provided of an intervention plan that is linked to the performance on the AEPS Test. Section 3 focuses on the administration of the AEPS and chapter 4 describes how test results can be used to provide services to children at risk or with disabilities. The chapter is divided into five sections that discusses using the AEPS Test results to: (1) develop individualized education program (IEP) goals; (2) develop individualized family service plan (IFSP) outcomes and intervention plans; (3) use the AEPS curriculum; (4) monitor child progress; and (5) corroborate eligibility decisions. Chapter 5 describes how to involve families in the assessment and evaluation process as well as specific strategies and forms for facilitating such involvement. The last chapter discusses a team approach to using the AEPS. Appendices describe the psychometric properties of the AEPS, include examples of IEP/IFSP goals and objectives, and data recording forms.
