Extended Assessment for Intervention: An Illustrated Case
Early Child Development and Care
An assessment/intervention approach that is an extension to more traditional evaluations conducted by school psychologists is described. This approach transforms the typical “testing office” into a simulated learning setting where adjunctive assessment data are obtained and intervention applied. The outcome of this approach is specific recommendations for change that can be immediately taken to the classroom. This extended assessment/intervention method is illustrated through the successful treatment of a two and one half year old's attention deficits.
