All about the Conscious Discipline e-DECA
A few of the great features
For programs using Conscious Discipline, the availability of a nationally standardized, strength-based assessment of children’s resilience is a much needed tool to track progress and monitor outcomes.
“Conscious Discipline has been recommending the Devereux Early Childhood Assessment (DECA) for over a decade. We are thrilled to offer Conscious Discipline practitioners a more efficient way to assess children’s social and emotional learning and resilience, monitor progress in the classroom, and utilize customized strategies to ensure desired outcomes are achieved for each student,” says Renee Whittington, CEO of Conscious Discipline.
For programs already using the e-DECA and Conscious Discipline separately, this resource can serve as a solution to make social and emotional assessment and planning a more efficient and coordinated process.

DCRC also focuses on promoting the health and well-being of all adults who parent, nurture and/or work with young children through a focus on adult resilience. The critical connection between children’s resilience and the health and wellness of the adults in children’s lives can not be underestimated. DCRC began this initiative in response to the growing understanding and appreciation that promoting children’s resilience depends significantly on the resilience of who cares for them. Our e-DECA users can now complete the Devereux Adult Resilience Survey (DARS) within the system, AND they can also access strategies for promoting their own resilience!
