Each CASEtool includes detailed instructions for use. As with any validated instrument, practitioners should use the tool with the age group for which it is designed and in the manner described in the instructions. Users should not modify or adapt a tool in any way without written permission from FIPP as this could invalidate the tool for its intended use.

We encourage you to use and share any of the materials on the website as long as you properly reference the Family, Infant & Preschool Program and author(s)(if listed) when using the materials and we ask that you use the materials in their current form rather than adapting or altering the content.
Yes! We invite you to use the CASE publications in your work as long as you properly reference the Family, Infant & Preschool Program and author(s)(if listed). You may not modify CASEtools without written permission of the Family, Infant and Preschool Program. You may not publish an entire tool in a manuscript without written permission of the Family, Infant and Preschool Program.
CASE documents are developed by FIPP research staff and other team members working directly with families on a daily basis. The purpose of CASE documents is to provide current research and implementation tools to practitioners as quickly as possible. Our intent is to offer a repository of current and past FIPP work for immediate and ongoing access.
All CASE documents go through an extensive internal review process to ensure accuracy, clarity, and ease of use. CASEtools are piloted and revised based on use by/with practitioners and families at FIPP prior to an external pilot process at implementation sites around the country. Once the tools are validated, they are made available on the website. If your program would be interested in serving as a CASEtool pilot implementation site, contact the FIPP Director.
CASE publications are primarily designed for individuals working in the fields of early intervention and early childhood. They may also be useful for parents of infants, toddlers, and preschool-age children participating in early intervention and early childhood services as well as other community stakeholders.
