In order to be considered for early childhood special education programming, children must experience developmental delays.
  3. L6. Describe assessments used with infants and young children.

    -Curriculum-based assessment: measures a child's mastery of a specific set of tasks or skills.

    -Judgment-based assessment: based on multiple sources to collect information about children and to supplement the data obtained from norm-referenced and criterion-referenced instruments.
