Assessment in the Special Education Process provides educators with methods for collecting information to help determine if a child is eligible for special education and related services. The authors identify the primary skill areas that special educators can evaluate to make informed decisions about a child's educational placement and instruction. While parents, teachers, and specialists can provide valuable information about a student's skills and needs, this indispensable text also offers school leaders a variety of assessment approaches, including observations, interviews, and testing. Readers will also find tools such as dynamic assessments and ecological assessments that can yield comprehensive data to guide eligibility decisions and educational programming.
