Our mission is to bring a scientific, evidence based Best Practice service model to as many learners as possible in their schools, homes and therapy sessions. This is affordable and most possible even in areas where funding is difficult, as long as every person working with the learner is willing to learn, collaborate and think out of the box. This project began with preparations to implement in India, we now plan to see this model being implemented in other countries in the Middle East and Asia. The implementation in France, Italy, UAE and many states across USA has been extremely successful.
Here is an introductory video about CLM (originally prepared for India)
Competent Learner Model (CLM) is based on principles of ABA, Precision Teaching, and Direct Instruction. It is written after 35 years of research by Ms Vicci Tucci BCBA and marketed by Tucci Learning Solutions Inc, California. CLM is a Best Practice model designed to empower all individuals working with learners who have difficulties. CLM products and services are available ONLY under rights of a CLM Regional Associate.
Most environments (home or school) dealing with this special population need a structured program to address all skill deficits in the learner. Every adult who is teaching the learner needs to learn how best to enhance these skills and all adults need to work consistently, and speak a common language. Assessment Tools, a sequenced curriculum, data collection tools and hands on training of staff members: these are the components required to run a program that will produce the best results.
CLM has components to match all these requirements.
Competent Learner Model (CLM) is a multi component package that addresses the individual learning needs of learners who have difficulty in participating in typical learning environments.
CLM provides accessible ‘solutions’ for the following:
- Assessment and Program Planning for learners (CLM Placement Assessment and Competent Learner Repertoire Assessment & Curriculum),
- Efficient Staff Training model that establishes and maintains ‘best practices’ (CLM Academy, Online Course of Study and Practical Coaching),
- Systems for Data Collection and Progress Monitoring (Individual Learner Folder, Competent Learner Model Management & Information System).
CLM is sustainable as it builds In house capacity and reduces the dependence on external “experts”. It is a model focused on implementation and NOT consultation.
A team of Instructors can be coached simultaneously and multiple students can benefit from this model. CLM trained instructors will be proficient in Formulating, Delivering and Monitoring Instruction for learners who have difficulties in school. Successful implementation meeting the required standards can lead up to accreditation for implementation of CLM within an organization.
Many Public Schools across the state of California, Pennsylvania and Virginia have successfully adopted this model.
CLM also has a home program component that can coach parents and caregivers in the same way. Having CLM in school and home for learners brings about consistency and empowers parents to support their child under coaching supervision.
CLM builds teams and keep learners successful.
In UAE CLM is implemented successfully in a Special Needs Centre, and in Home Programs for many learners.
We are confident that this is a Best Practice Solution that is sustainable; evidence based and provides Positive Behavior Support in order to facilitate least restrictive access for learners in their environments. For the adults working with the learner it has:
