PSYC 8530 EARLY CHILDHOOD ASSESSMENT (3 credits)
This course is an introduction to the assessment of children during early development including infancy, toddler, preschool and early primary ages. Assessment will be discussed as it relates to problem-solving and data-based decision making (i.e., diagnosis, treatment, program evaluation). Students will learn the principles of working with young children and their families and how these principles will be used in conducting valid and reliable assessments that, in turn, lead to appropriate interventions.
Prerequisite(s)/Corequisite(s): Admission to School Psychology Graduate Program and/or permission of instructor. Not open to non-degree graduate students.
