Early ABLES professional learning

Early ABLES is a strengths and observation-based online assessment for learning tool. It supports early childhood educators to provide a more individualised learning experience for children aged two to five years with disabilities and/or developmental delay.

The Early ABLES suite has been expanded to include three new assessments for use from 2021, which will support educators to:

  • observe and assess a child’s progress in learning
  • develop appropriate learning goals in collaboration with parents/carers and other professionals
  • develop an individualised learning plan with evidence-informed teaching and learning strategies
  • monitor progress along a likely progression of learning
  • support the development of an individual child’s learning program using the Early Years Planning Cycle
  • improve transition from early childhood to school through information sharing.
