For academics and practitioners, this text, consisting of 18 chapters by US contributors in a variety of disciplines, addresses the psychoeducational assessment of preschool children. Bracken (The College of William and Mary) and Nagle (Appalachian State U.) bring together these chapters on the history and issues of preschool assessment, early childhood screening and readiness, multicultural factors, and ecological assessment in clinical observation, preschool, home and family, school and classroom, and play situations. Cognitive abilities and specific abilities relating to communication, language, speech, gross motor development, and neuropsychology are examined. The new edition has material on environmental and home and family assessment; discusses new tests such as the Stanford-Binet V and the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, Second Edition; and updates all chapters.
