Child-guided Strategies for Assessing Children who are Deafblind or have Multiple Disabilities

Child-guided Strategies for Assessing Children who are Deafblind or have Multiple Disabilities

This unique CD-ROM by Dr. Catherine Nelson and Dr. Jan van Dijk is user-friendly and highly interactive as it demonstrates Dr. van Dijk's strategies and techniques for assessing and teaching children with multiple disabilities through the use of video clips, questions pertaining to the video clips, discussion, and relevant literature. Comprehensive assessments of two children are included. Through an interactive question and answer format, the viewer can design an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for the two children based upon the assessments. Also included in the CD-ROM is an index of many terms pertaining to deafblindness and multiple disabilities.

Each term is defined, explained in depth, and illustrated by video clips. In addition to a comprehensive printed article detailing the assessment process, 12 full text articles by Dr. Jan van Dijk and colleagues are also included in the production. This item is not available through Federal Quota Funds.
