This module discusses how to do preschool evaluations in an accurate and appropriate manner. One of the first questions to ask is “What are the prior experiences of the child being assessed?” When evaluators assess children, they need to be sure the child has been exposed to the knowledge and behaviors the evaluator is expecting the chid to have. Cate provides examples of holograms and demonstrates how they can provide a much better and more accurate picture for the person reading the evaluation. In addition, we must use our clinical judgment to understand the child’s background and determine whether that is typical based on the child’s environment and past experiences. Cate also reviews how to quantify the descriptive information gained in appropriate evaluations.
