ELCC programs have a role in assessing children’s strengths, progress and needs. Every child is unique and brings a wealth of prior knowledge and experiences as well as differing abilities. Evaluating the progress of children is as valid for a child with a disability as it is for a child without a disability. This workshop addresses the importance of observation and record keeping, introduces several assessment tools and examines the purpose of assessment and how the data can be used to support better outcomes for children.
