Hillsboro, OR, September 26, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- By Karen L. Anderson and Lynn H. Price, "Steps to Assessment - A Guide to Identifying Educational Needs for Students with Hearing Loss" is the latest addition to the Butte Publications, Inc. itinerant teaching books offered in their online catalog. A useful tool, the guide focuses on assessment from transition to school at age 3 through high school.
The guide offers categories of assessment, in addition to ways teachers can tease out information from assessment results to illustrate how to identify needs to support eligibility. A variety of assessments are described for each category. Steps to Assessment also include case studies that show how the teacher can choose appropriate test instruments and interpret the results, including determining possible goal areas. Self-learning application activities help readers to integrate the information into daily practice.
Teachers who use this guide will have a much better understanding of the vulnerable areas of development due to hearing loss, how the areas interconnect, and ultimately how they are the experts in using the "deaf lens" to contribute to their evaluation teams and service planning.
