Diagnostic Testing and Assessment: A Holistic Approach.
Leonard, Bonnie D.
The author suggests that questions of specialist territoriality in the evaluation of handicapped children shift the focus of assessment away from the children and onto the specialists who work with them. Instead, she advocates a redirection of efforts toward training diagnosticians from a variety of fields who can facilitate the workings of multidisciplinary teams. Ten tenets of assessment and diagnosis, including that bias is inherent in the assessment process and that process and product require equal attention in evaluation, are discussed. (CL)
