PPP 734 - Early Intervention and Behavioral Assessment

Credits 3
This course covers the assessment of young children having problems that require special sensitivity to the children’s backgrounds and knowledge of testing procedures and limitations with young children. Even typical young children often are difficult to assess accurately because of factors such as heightened activity level and distractibility, attention span, wariness of strangers, and inconsistent performances in unfamiliar environments. Additionally, factors such as cultural differences, language barriers, environmental disadvantage, and limited interaction with other children can have substantial effects on the interpretation of assessment findings. This course extends behavioral analysis training by introducing considerations and practicing methods needed for early intervention and assessment of young children.
