Developed as a component of the Ziggurat Model: A Framework for Designing Comprehensive Interventions’
the Underlying Characteristics Checklists - Classic Autism (UCC-CL) is an informal, non-standardized assessment tool designed to identify characteristics across a number of domains associated with ASD. It is not designed or intended for diagnosis of ASD.
The UCC is especially helpful for those working with school-aged individuals as the information gathered from the UCC provides a starting point for developing an IEP. The UCC and the Ziggurat Model in tandem lead to a program that is based on individual needs and uses the best practices in the field.
The UCC-CL is intended for those who present with more classic autism characteristics. Each package contains 1 assessment instruction manual and 20 blank checklists.
