Assessment; What is intervention without assessment? It is a shot in the dark. It is a “I hope this works”, instead of “I know exactly what areas of development need to be worked on both in intervention and at home therefore we target these as best we can”. Whats important to remember is that every meeting with the child is a chance for an assessment. We will always ascertain new information from an adaptive response. We are continuously assessing, even after the assessment is complete.
