Make the most of the brand-new AEPS-3 system with 6 short training sessions



Participate in a virtual AEPS®-3 Training Institute divided across six Wednesdays this fall—and learn everything you need to know about the brand-new edition of Assessment, Evaluation, and Programming System for Infants and Children (AEPS®). Through interactive, two-hour virtual sessions, you will explore how to use the AEPS-3 linked system to assess, set goals, plan teaching and intervention, monitor young children’s progress, and support participation and involvement with families.

Provided via Zoom, this six-week training covers

  • the fundamentals of AEPS-3, including the system’s organization and the 8 developmental areas
  • best practices for test administration, including authentic assessment, virtual assessment, and group assessment
  • scoring of the assessment, including qualified scoring options new to the third edition
  • use of AEPS-3 for eligibility determination
  • development of IFSP and IEP goals using AEPS-3 data
  • linking AEPS-3 data with teaching and intervention using the new multi-tiered, activity-based curriculum
  • an introduction to the new Ready-Set measure for measuring school readiness
  • working with families throughout the assessment and intervention process

Who should attend?

Professionals working with young children (early interventionists, early childhood educators, home visitors, program administrators, therapists, speech-language pathologists, psychologists). This training is appropriate for participants familiar with the earlier edition of AEPS and participants new to the AEPS system.
