I think it is important to understand the information that each of these tools can yield and that testing should contain a play component, a parental report component, and a standardized testing component whenever possible. There are parent questionnaires and tools that rely ...

  • The Latest and Greatest Assessments for Children Ages 3-5

    This fall at the preschool where I practice, we have had an unusually high number of children in need of full evaluations all for various reasons.

  • Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice Play-Doh

    Earlier this past week, one of the teachers I work with, Jamie Zarmanian, shared with our preschool classes this fabulous recipe for pumpkin spice Play-Doh.
