Overview

Partners in Play: Assessing Infants and Toddlers in Natural Contexts is a text for students taking courses in Assessment and Early Childhood Special Education. The text includes specific instructions for observing, administering, scoring, and interpreting results of assessment, as well as two extensive illustrations from the field. In addition, the text includes a new criterion-referenced instrument to identify infants and toddlers, birth through age three, who may be eligible for early intervention services. The assessment is appropriate for evaluating infants and toddlers with a wide range of actual and suspected delays and abilities, including children with environmental risk factors, children born prematurely, children with Pervasive Developmental Disorders, and youngsters with other neurological and/or developmental problems.
