This handbook presents a new, practical and logical way of assessing development in preschool children that can be applied across the developmental spectrum. The reader is taught how to confirm whether development is typical and if it is not, is signposted to the likely nature and severity of impairments with a plan of action. The author uses numerous case vignettes from her 40 years' experience to bring to life her approach with clear summary key points and helpful illustrations.

Clarifies 'what is being tested' and the rationale behind traditional tests Includes tables showing the ages at which 50% and 90% of children achieve a specific domain Describes permissible assessment adaptations for children with impairments.

This title will be of value to paediatricians, paediatric neurologists, developmental psychologists, health visitors, specialist nurses, speech-, occupational- and physiotherapists, ophthalmologists, orthoptists, audiologists and audiometricians at every level of experience in the care of children from 0 to 5 years.
