  • Short duration assessment, minimize time spent on assessment while maintaining quality results
  • All assessment materials needed to run the CSA are included in the free assessment kit

"The ACE is without question the most comprehensive and functional assessment, curriculum and instructional program for the field of autism today. It encompasses the full range of relevant and important skills typically applicable to children (and adults) with autism. Further, the validity of the program is matched by its ease of use. I have seen many sophisticated and elegant computer applications that are simply beyond the span of most consumers. In contrast, the ACE is extremely interactive and easy to navigate, and thus promises widespread applicability."
Judith Favell, Ph.D., BCBA-D CEO, AdvoServ, President, Behavior Analyst Certification Board

"The ACE is based on the scientific principles of Applied Behavior Analysis which is the gold standard for the education and treatment of individuals with autism. I have found the ACE to be an effective tool for teaching critical skills to students and adults with autism. Some of the most impressive features of the ACE are how it permits teachers and therapists to design individualized curricula that produce significant learning gains and track the individual's progress. The ACE is evidence-based and reflects years of peer reviewed research and sound educational practices. It permits the identification of entry points of instruction and the achievement of goals and objectives across the student's lifetime. The ACE is very useful in the evaluation of group and classroom-wide performance. Any organization looking to significantly increase the quality of its educational services should give strong consideration to adding the ACE to its programming."

"The ACE offers high-quality curricula, standardized to preserve state-of-the-art teaching procedures, but flexible enough to be customized for each individual child with autism."
