For courses in Assessment in Early Childhood Special Education.

Written by experts, this text prepares students who will work with special-needs infants and preschoolers to use assessment for the purpose of planning effective, personalized intervention programs. It thoroughly examines the full range of assessment issues - from test development to cultural competence - with an emphasis on family-centered practices, the impact of a child's everyday environment, and the value of collaborative decision-making in order to understand the "whole" child who has a disability. The authors thoroughly ground readers in the fundamentals of all assessment, while concentrating most on assessment of the youngest children birth to five years old.
