Transdiciplinary Play-Based Assessment (TPBA) and Transdisciplinary Play-Based Intervention (TPBI) capitalize on what children like most and do best -- Play! When children are playing, their minds and bodies are hard at work developing essential thinking, communication and language, movement, and social-emotional skills. This highly acclaimed system gives professionals the most natural, engaging assessment and intervention methods available for working with young children from infancy to age 6. Unlike traditional assessment and intervention strategies, these innovative methods enable children to engage in activities that are meaningful, enjoyable, and unintimidating. During both processes, a play facilitator responds to child-initiated play interactions within a natural environment. These methods encourage children to demonstrate the full range of behaviors in their repertoires and master higher levels of functioning. Grounded in a philosophy that recognizes parents as vital team members, both TPBA and TPBI can be used effectively with children who have disabilities, children who are at risk for developmental delays, and children who do not have disabilities. This convenient package contains five tablets, each with all the necessary assessment and intervention worksheets for TPBA and TPBI. Each tablet includes instructions and provides forms in an 8 1/2 x 11 easy-to-use format. These attractive forms, ready to drop into a three-ring binder, make individualized child planning a lot simpler.

The general public often views early childhood education as either simply “babysitting” or as preparation for later learning. Of course, both viewpoints are simplistic. Deep understanding of child development, best educational practices based on development, emergent curriculum, cultural competence and applications of family systems are necessary for high-quality early education. Highly effective early childhood education is rare in that it requires collaboration and transitions among a variety of systems for children from birth through eight years of age. The SAGE Encyclopedia of Contemporary Early Childhood Education presents in three comprehensive volumes advanced research, accurate practical applications of research, historical foundations and key facts from the field of contemporary early childhood education. Through approximately 425 entries, this work includes all areas of child development – physical, cognitive, language, social, emotional, aesthetic – as well as comprehensive review of best educational practices with young children, effective preparation for early childhood professionals and policy making practices, and addresses such questions as: · How is the field of early childhood education defined? · What are the roots of this field of study? · How is the history of early childhood education similar to yet different from the study of public education? · What are the major influences on understandings of best practices in early childhood education?
