Callier-Azusa Scale

The Callier-Azusa Scale was designed specifically for students with deaf-blindness by an interdisciplinary team who had many years of experience with this population. It is also appropriate for assessing most students with severe handicaps and is especially valuable for students with visual and/or hearing impairments because of subscales relating to visual, auditory and tactile development.

The method of assessment is through direct observation in classroom settings with input from parents and others who know the student well. A two week observation period is suggested.

To order the Callier-Azusa Scale, complete the order form and return it via fax or mail.
