New Visions for the Developmental Assessment of Infants and Young Children
By:S Meisels, E Fenichel

This book describes developmental assessment as a process designed to deepen understanding of a child's skills and abilities, and of the care giving and learning environments most likely to help a child make fullest use of his or her developmental potential. Among the topics covered are the principles and guidelines of developmental assessment developed by ZERO TO THREE; parents' perspectives; contextual perspectives; assessment approaches; and assessment and policy context.

This text offers a state-of-the-art review of assessment theory and practice. It advocates a shift in the assessment process to one that is family-centered and viewed as a continuum with intervention. Excellent for seasoned practitioners as well as novices to the field.
