Summary: There are many assessment systems available to provide the answers teachers and parents seek regarding the progression of infants, toddlers, and young children. However, simply choosing and administering an assessment instrument or procedure from the wide array of tools available today can be an overwhelming task. Assessment of Young Children with Special Needshelps prepare teachers for the task of evaluating the skills of infants, toddlers, and preschool children with developmental
delays and those considered at risk to experience developmental delays or difficulties. A child's environment is a critical consideration when focusing on assessment, and authors Susan Benner and Joan Grim explore the important issues of family resources, health issues, and domestic violence. Assessment of Young Children with Special Needsconveys a sense of respect for parents, the powerful influence assessment results can and do have in the lives of young children with special needs, and an understanding of the complexity of child development, progression, and measurement. This book sets the tone for important values and beliefs to honor throughout one's professional life. This fully revised edition addresses recent legislation, updated versions of assessment tools and strategies, and the newest assessment tools that teachers will come across.
