ECE 304 - Infant and Toddler Assessment

4 credits (PREREQUISITE/COREQUISITE: ECE 302 and ECE 303)

This course is designed for students to examine closely the development of infants and toddlers and to gain the ability to observe and assess infants and toddlers using a variety of methods. Students will use various screening and developmental tools (standardized, criterion-referenced and qualitative), in order to assess children’s developmental levels and determine needs. Students will need to work with typically and atypically developing infants and toddlers in order to complete this course. Fieldwork sites will be provided by the program. Students should plan to spend approximately 15 hours throughout the semester in a classroom with infants and toddlers.  (Su)
