Preschool Assessment Manual. Early Childhood Education.
Crnick, Keith; And Others
The manual is designed to help Washington state school districts and multidisciplinary assessment teams comply with state and federal rules and regulations regarding assessment of preschool handicapped children. The introductory section focuses on the developmental characteristics of the preschool child. Eligibility criteria in cognitive, receptive language, expressive language, gross motor, fine motor, sensory, social, and self help functioning are discussed. Also addressed are situations in which unnecessary referrals are made. General guidelines in testing preschoolers are followed by considerations in physical arrangements, ways to establish rapport, reinforcement, and management. An annotated bibliography of 28 tests concludes the document. (CL)
