Play-based assessment is a functional, observational approach to assessment of infants and preschoolers to assess current skills and plan for the developent of individualized programming and assist in determining the need for an IEP. In this two day workshop, you will learn about the guidelines developed for the implementation of Transdisciplinary Play-Based Assessment-2, based on the latest research across cognitive, language, sensorimotor and emotional and social development. New parent information developed from that research will also be introduced. Upon completion, participants will be able to demonstrate knowledge of typical and atypical development across developmental domains through documentation of observation of play. Participants will examine facilitation strategies to elicit optimal levels of performance during a Transdisciplinary Play-Based Assessment. In addition, participants will understand how they can work as a team and document their observations in a transdisciplinary summary.
