Announcing The ABLLS®-R Assessment Kit
VB Teaching Tools is proud to annouce the new ABLLS®-R Assessment Kit is now available with many new upgrades and improvements. The new ABLLS®-R Assessment Kit has been approved by Dr. James Partington, PhD, BCBA, author of the ABLLS®-R, and comes fully stocked with all wooden puzzles, complete flashcard sets, multi color picture displays, durable fine motor and 3D object supplies. All items are labeled and coded to coincide with the tasks associated with both the ABLLS®-R (updated version) and original ABLLS® protocol.
What is the ABLLS®?
The ABLLS® is a valuable assessment tool, researched and produced by Drs. Mark Sundberg and James Partington, for parents and educators to assess their students? skill level across many key areas including:
Syntax and Grammar
Play and Leisure skills
The ABLLS®-R is a recent revision to the original ABLLS® that includes additional and revised task items. We have found the ABLLS® to be a vital jump start to any ABA program or language delay treatment plan. It is easy to use, has clearly defined levels of mastery, and gives examples and description of each skill. For more information on the ABLLS®-R please visit www.behavioranalysts.com.
Why do I need the ABLLS®-R Assessment Kit?
The ABLLS® assessment covers a wide variety of skill areas and gathering the numerous materials can be difficult to locate as well as costly. The ABLLS®-R Assessment Kit includes materials from more than 100 suppliers. The ABLLS®-R Assessment Kit cuts down on the multiple vendors and offers all of the materials available from one supplier, for one price, that is more economical than paying the retail rate and shipping costs from the numerous suppliers.
In addition, one criticism of the ABLLS® is the assessor may get different results depending on the materials they use each time you conduct follow-up assessments. The ABLLS®-R kit allows you to use the SAME materials each time you conduct an assessment providing more strict reliability. It also allows the assessor to have all of the materials in one location for a quicker assessment. All of the items are labeled with corresponding ABLLS® code for easy identification of the materials required.

Can I use the ABLLS®-R kit with multiple students?
All items in the kit are durable and classroom ready. While the kit can be used with multiple children, many school districts choose to have one per classroom and in some cases, one per student so that each child has their own materials marked and labeled for their individual use.
I have the original ABLLS® kit. What is difference in the ABLLS®-R Assessment Kit?
The original kit was designed to be the most economical product specifically designed for home programs or individual use. The most economic items were included to keep the cost as low as possible. Our main emphases were low cost items, the smallest quantities necessary to conduct the ABLLS® Assessment, and the smallest available size to reduce space and cost.
The ABLLS®-R Assessment Kit has been redesigned for more industrial use for more clinical and school district settings both in the United States and Internationally. All of the products included are more durable and of a higher quality than the original kit that VB Teaching Tools produced and contains full quantities such as providing the full boxed sets of manipulatives and flashcards.
It contains more durable wooden items such as classroom caliber puzzles. The kit also contains all complete flashcard box sets. The original kit had some of the flashcard sets broken down (i.e. only 10 occupations examples rather than the full boxed set of 110 because the ABLLS® only required the use of 4). In addition it now contains higher quality 3D objects and adjective supplies such as hard wooden furniture and high quality play food. Finally, some additional items have been included such as DVDs for more easily teaching ongoing actions and emotions that include teaching tips and chapter selections. The full ABLLS®-R protocol itself is also provided in each ABLLS®-R Assessment Kit and along with a highly recommended resource book Turning the Tables on Autism, by author, parent, and BCBA Robert Schramm. We are confident you will find our new kit more suitable for both the classroom and home program with many new resources.
