Have you thought about writing out your own curriculum or possibly planning it out with a boxed curriculum? As the parent, you might be able to get something closer to your son's needs than an organization. I'm not familiar with ECOT so I don't have any advice for that. Sorry! Good luck! 8)

 I used workbox approach. The book 'how do i teach this kid' really helped me more than anything. There is no curriculum for my son at his various levels with his issues taken into account. He is autism at a 2yo level (he is 9) but he can read some sight words and knows all letters-but cant communicate. So I just started creating activities based on his IEP goals from being in school. So we do things like lacing cards, lots of handwriting using dryerase, pens, crayons, counting, playing computer games. Just lots of things, I also count half his hours doing lifeskills. I have him cook, grooming, cleaning, shopping ect.
