This course, offered through Fisher College, takes a relationship-based developmental approach to observation, screening, and assessment of young children, ages birth through eight. Students will focus on family-centered practice in assessing young children from diverse cultures and with diverse abilities. Students in this class learn assessment practices that lead to plans for supporting development in ways that are individually and culturally relevant for families and caregivers and that are consistent with current recommended practices. The Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) will be presented as providing the philosophical basis for structuring family-centered assessment and intervention as a strategy required for work with infants and toddlers with disabilities under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). They will learn how to systematically observe, document, and use effective assessment strategies in responsible ways – in partnership with families and other professionals – to positively influence children’s development and learning. This is a 3-credit college course.

This course leads to EEC Lead Teacher certification.
