General Information

The Checklist of Adaptive Living Skills (CALS) and the Adaptive Living Skills Curriculum (ALSC) are part of an integrated systems approach that links assessment, instruction, and evaluation. They are statistically linked to the Scales of Independent Behavior (SIB) and the Inventory for Client and Agency Planning.

Use the entire system and get the full benefit of its integrated design, or choose the elements that meet your specific needs.

CALS and ALSC look at approximately 800 specific behaviors organized into skill modules in four broad domains: Personal Living Skills, Home Living Skills, Community Living Skills, and Employment Skills. Each behavior in CALS has a corresponding instructional unit in ALSC. Behaviors cover the continuum of development from infancy to adulthood.
