A Manual for the Assessment of a "Deaf-Blind" Multiply-Handicapped Child. Revised Edition.
Collins, Michael T.; Rudolph, James M.
Presented is a manual for program assessment of the deaf-blind child's development. In the introduction, it is stressed that the manual is not intended to be a curriculum guide and that scale items are not designed to replace the objectives and activities of the child's curriculum. Assessment checklists are color-coded according to the following areas (sample divisions under major areas are in parentheses): personal self-help skills (bottle feeding, dressing, washing hands, and grooming), social development (interaction with children, interaction with family, and behaviors in a structured educational setting), gross motor development (head movements, creeping, and adaptive balance), fine motor development (holding objects, finger movements, and inspection and manipulation of more than one object), language development (imitation, gesturing, and written communication), and cognition (object permanence, problem solving, and sequencing). Spaces are provided for checking off the child's demonstrated abilities during six assessments. An additional listing is provided for recording behavior patterns that interfere excessively with the child's attentiveness and "normal" functioning. (SB)
