In the fourth module of this series, Cate explains the importance of parents as partners in EI disability evaluations. She presents research-based Critical Questions that evaluators can use to gather useful information from caregivers when evaluating a child, including information about the child’s language and dialect acquisitional history. Cate also presents the case of a 2.8-year-old boy, Alex, to demonstrate how to use the clinical questions to gather information and write up a quality EI evaluation.

This is a module series based on a series of trainings given in March and April of 2016 for the NYC Department of Health and Mental Health Bureau of Early Intervention by Catherine J. Crowley, J.D., Ph.D., a professor of Practice at Teachers College, Columbia University. The purpose of the trainings was to provide information about the NYCDOH Bureau of Early Intervention’s standards for culturally and linguistically appropriate evaluations to EIODs, agency coordinators, and evaluators in New York City.
