Early Intervention Evaluation Reports: Guidelines for Writing User-Friendly and Strength-Based Assessments
Towle, Patricia; Farrell, Anne F.; Vitalone-Raccaro, Nancy
Zero to Three, v28 n4 p53-60 Mar 2008
Assessment and evaluation activities are an integral part of early intervention services. These activities culminate in written evaluation reports that include information such as observations of skills and deficits, diagnosis, and recommendations for intervention. However, few guidelines exist to help guide early intervention providers in writing evaluation reports that are strength-based and use language that is easy for families to understand. This article presents a family-centered framework with guidelines and specific strategies for writing effective evaluation reports that build strong alliances between families and practitioners.
