CS 605 - Assessment Infant/Toddler Early Childhood: Children with Special Needs

In this course, students will learn to conceptualize assessment as a flexible, collaborative, decision-making, on-going process where parents and professionals are engaged to make and revise judgments and reach consensus about the medical, educational and mental health service needs of young children. Students will become familiar with various assessment instruments, test administration and the writing of clear reports. Students are encouraged to be mindful that when instruments and procedures accommodate a child’s sensory response, affective and cultural characteristics, they are equitable. Emphasis will focus on linking assessment to individual program planning, instruction, services and progress. In the fieldwork placement, students will learn to rely on authentic measures of problem solving that link directly to New York State Standards and program content goals in natural settings.

3 credits. Spring.
This course requires ten hours of fieldwork.
