Considerations in Assessment of Children with Severe Disabilities Including Deaf-Blindness and Autism.
Wolf-Schein, Enid G.
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v45 n1 p35-55 Mar 1998
This paper discusses assessment of autistic and deaf-blind children with such severe difficulties in communication that they are often labeled as untestable and subsequently misdiagnosed as severely to profoundly mentally retarded. It urges nonintrusive assessment and appropriate intervention as the most relevant procedures for helping this population advance educationally and in life skills. (Author/DB)
