Summary

This comprehensive, authoritative guide contains everything you need to know to screen and assess preschoolers competently and according to federal standards. Packed with the most current research and clinical instruments, and reflecting recent changes in the federal legislation, this book includes important coverage of play-based assessment, family assessment, and multicultural issues.

In this thoroughly revised and updated new edition, the authors carefully explain the latest legislation - and how to implement it. Taking care to include all aspects of effective assessment, they begin by reviewing normal development in the preschool years, then discuss atypical development, legal and ethical issues involved in assessment, and practical considerations in assessing young children. Throughout the text, they include many useful aids: model developmental interviews, case studies, checklists to follow in testing, lists of relevant books and resources, and many helpful tables and charts describing tests and strategies to follow. A full section, Part Four, shows clearly how to write useful case reports and transform assessment results into action. A model case report leads readers step-by-step through the tasks involved in writing and assessing results.

For assessment and screening of preschoolers.
