Advanced assessment methods for serving young children with and without developmental delays and their families.
During the past fifty years, the field of early childhood special education has emerged from the fields of early childhood education and special education. Professionals have developed a number of intervention strategies that are well suited for working with young children with and without developmental delays and their families. With the implementation of legislation mandating services for children with developmental delays (e.g., PL 94-142, PL 99-457), teachers who work with young children with developmental delays need to acquire background information and evidence-based assessment skills for use in early childhood special education programs, particularly inclusive preschools.
Your proposal is being returned for the following reason:
There remains some controversy surrounding the "requirement" for a separate learning outcome for graduate student. Until resolved, I'm still going to ask for some articulation of the purpose behind the additional assignment. Please consider something like: (1) relable Learning Outcomes as "Learning Outcomes for All Students; and (2) Add "Learning Outcomes for Graduate Students: As a result of successful completion of this course, graduate students will be able to do all of the above, and 6. Demonstrate effective communication skills through the presentation of formal assessment results."
Also, a typical semester is 14 weeks; this class appears to cover 15 weeks (meetings). Any chance for a modification to 14 weeks?
Please address these concerns and return them through the APPS system so that they are received by or before February 18.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
