More About This Textbook

Overview

This fourth edition of Psychoeducational Assessment of Preschool Children continues the mission of its predecessors—to provide both academics and practitioners with a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the assessment of young children. Long recognized as the standard text and reference in its field, it is organized into four sections: Foundations; Ecological Assessment; Assessment of Cognitive Abilities; and Assessment of Specific Abilities. Key features of this new edition include:

New Material—A thorough updating includes new material on environmental and home and family assessment plus new coverage of recently revised tests, including the Stanford-Binet V and the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, 2e.

Balanced Coverage—Sound theoretical coverage precedes and supports the book’s main focus on assessing the abilities, skills, behavior, and characteristics of young children.

Expertise—Each chapter is written by a nationally recognized scholar and represents state-of-the-art coverage of its topic.

Comprehensive and Flexible—The broad range and organization of topics covered makes the book suitable for both new and experienced examiners and for use as a text in graduate level courses on preschool assessment.
