Overview

The AEPS® Test allows professionals to gather assessment data for one child or a group of children in home- or center-based settings. This volume includes the tests for both age levels, which are divided into six developmental areas—fine motor, gross motor, cognitive, adaptive, social-communication, and social. Each area is subdivided into a progression of skills:
  • strands of general skill areas
  • goals made up of skills in those areas
  • objectives made up of smaller skills that build up to the goals

View our recorded webinar: Reliable Assessment and Effective Programming with AEPS presented by Kevin Warg.

While children and their caregivers engage in everyday activities, professionals assess each developmental area using the AEPS data recording forms. Each item is scored with a 0 (does not pass), 1 (inconsistent performance), or 2 (passes consistently). To supplement and clarify these scores, professionals choose from 5 qualifying notes and use the blank space provided for more specific comments. With this multipart scoring process—and the input caregivers add with the revised Family Report—the AEPS Test lets professionals pinpoint what children can do, identify areas that need attention, and use that information as a starting point to develop individualized IFSP/IEP goals and objectives.

This volume is part of the bestselling AEPS system for children from birth to six years who have disabilities or are at risk for developmental delays. Thousands of programs across the country rely on AEPS for comprehensive, seamlessly linked assessment, evaluation, intervention, and programming. AEPS is criterion-referenced and curriculum-based, and with web-based data management through AEPSi™, it's easier than ever to assess young children and ensure that they make real progress.

About the Author



JoAnn (JJ) Johnson, Ph.D., is associate professor in the Child and Family Studies Department in the School of Education at Saint Cloud State University in Minnesota. Previously, she worked at University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities in Louisiana, Oregon, and Nevada, serving as a center-based coordinator and teacher for young children ages 2–5, as a Graduate Teaching Fellow and home services coordinator, and as an adjunct faculty member, grant and contract director, project administrator, and service provider. She was also Director of the Research and Educational Planning Center and the Nevada University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities from 2001 to 2008.

Her professional experiences in disabilities services and studies include hospital-, home-, and center-based early intervention and developmental services; developmental assessment and evaluation; supervision and program coordination; and university and outreach training and instruction. Since the 1990s, Dr. Johnson has worked with both federal and numerous state departments of education and provided workshops and training throughout the United States and internationally on the use of the AEPS and activity-based intervention for families and professionals. In her spare time, Dr. Johnson likes to read, work on home projects, and observe young children’s development.


Kristine Slentz, Ph.D., is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Special Education at Western Washington University and works as a training and technical assistance consultant for Early Support for Infants and Toddlers (ESIT), the Part C program in Washington State. Her particular areas of interest and expertise are assessment and evaluation, early intervention, risk and resiliency, and working within family contexts across cultures. She has been fortunate to combine her love of travel with international training opportunities in Canada, Dubai, Singapore, and Kenya.

Elizabeth Straka, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, provides training and technical assistance to agencies that provide services to young children with disabilities and their families. She also provides training seminars nationally in regard to recommended practice in assessment and intervention with young children and their families, with an emphasis on team collaboration. Dr. Straka continues to practice as a therapist, focusing on the assessment and treatment of developmental disorders in young children.

Dr. Bricker served as Director of the Early Intervention Program at the Center on Human Development, University of Oregon, from 1978 to 2004. She was a professor of special education, focusing on the fields of early intervention and social-communication.

Her professional interests have addressed three major areas: early intervention service delivery approaches, curricula-based assessment and evaluation, and developmental-behavioral screening. Dr. Bricker's work in early intervention approaches has been summarized in two volumes: An Activity-Based Approach to Early Intervention, Fourth Edition (with J. Johnson & N. Rahn; Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2015) and An Activity-Based Approach to Developing Young Children’s Social Emotional Competence (with J. Squires; Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2007). Her work in curricula-based assessment/evaluation has focused on the development of the Assessment, Evaluation, and Programming System for Infants and Children, Second Edition (AEPS®; with B. Capt, K. Pretti- Frontczak, J. Johnson, K. Slentz, E. Straka, & M Waddell; Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2004). This measure and curricula provides intervention personnel with a system for the comprehensive assessment of young children with results that link directly to curricular content and subsequent evaluation of child progress.

Dr. Bricker has been a primary author of the Ages & Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ®; with J. Squires; Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 1995, 1999, 2009) and directed research activities on the ASQ system starting in 1980. Developmental Screening in Your Community: An Integrated Approach for Connecting Children with Services (Bricker, Macy, Squires, & Marks; Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2013) offers a comprehensive system for creating and operating community-wide developmental-behavioral screening programs for young children.

Dr. Bricker's distinctions include the Division of Early Childhood, Council for Exceptional Children Service to the Field Award, December 1992, and the Peabody College Distinguished Alumna Award, May 1995.
