This unique handbook presents measurement tools to appropriately evaluate pediatric clients in occupational, speech, and physical therapy. The authors discuss careful assessment technique and the importance of taking a critical look at the evaluation tools currently available. By understanding the tools' strengths and limitations they can make informed decisions on what tool to use as part of the assessment of their particular client. The authors critically review evaluation tools commonly used in practice in four areas: developmental and screening, sensorimotor, language, and psychological and cognitive. Part I contains general principles and guidelines for the use and analysis of assessments, and provides a foundation for the selection, implementation, and measurement of the assessment tests reviewed in Part II, and a comprehensive view of assessment. Background information on psychological tests helps the therapist understand and integrate test findings when evaluating children. An informative chapter by a nationally recognized occupational therapist explains the psychometric properties necessary for selecting a good and appropriate test. Coverage also includes: adapting standardized tests for the physically handicapped; the assessment process; and responsibilities of the test user. This helpful book defines the full range of assessment tools -- enabling the therapist to select those most suitable for each child as they consider the many aspects of the child's development.
