AIM : Assessment Intervention Matrix --Wolf-Schein, Enid G.; Schein, Jerome D. Coconut Creek, Florida: Three Bridge Publishers. (2009) The Assessment Intervention Matrix (AIM) is a curriculum used to teach individuals with significant communication or sensory impairments (including those with severe auditory and visual problems or autism) to develop communication and daily-living skills in realistic, meaningful contexts, at school and at home. It is designed to bridge the gap between assessment and intervention through a process of continuous assessment, structured, intensive intervention, and reassessment, and can be tailored to the needs of pupils with a wide variety of abilities and deficits. AIM is divided into 2 parts addressing 7 skill areas. Part I: drinking, eating, dressing, and toileting. Part 2: personal care, housekeeping, and food preparation. This CD-ROM contains an updated version of AIM, which was previously released in 1995 and 2002. The CD contains separate pdf files of the AIM sections and their associated assessment and curriculum forms. Cost: $34.95 (includes priority mailing).
