Early Childhood Outcomes and Prekindergarten Alignment Document. Region 13, commissioned by TEA, created a document that aligns the Pre-Kindergarten Guidelines to the three Early Childhood Outcomes. The purpose of this document is to align each Prekindergarten guideline to one or more of the three Early Childhood Outcomes, and provide educators and families with discussion prompts to explain how each outcome relates to the guideline. The document also provides modifications and adaptations for children with special needs and extends to include a developmental continuum for teachers to use in developing appropriate goals for children who are developmentally functioning below four-year-old expectations, based on the guidelines. Additionally, foundational skills that will lead to expected three-year-old and four-year-old skills are discussed throughout the document.
