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 many years. We are delighted to now offer our users a more efficient way to assess children’s social and emotional health and resilience, monitor progress in the classroom, and customize strategies to promote children’s resilience,” says Keith McIntyre, Conscious Discipline’s Executive Director. For programs already using the eDECA and Conscious Discipline, this resource can serve as a solution to make social and emotional assessment and planning a more efficient and coordinated process.
