Transdiciplinary Play-Based Assessment (TPBA) and Transdisciplinary Play-Based Intervention (TPBI) capitalize on what children like most and do best -- Play! When children are playing, their minds and bodies are hard at work developing essential thinking, communication and language, movement, and social-emotional skills. This highly acclaimed system gives professionals the most natural, engaging assessment and intervention methods available for working with young children from infancy to age 6. Unlike traditional assessment and intervention strategies, these innovative methods enable children to engage in activities that are meaningful, enjoyable, and unintimidating. During both processes, a play facilitator responds to child-initiated play interactions within a natural environment. These methods encourage children to demonstrate the full range of behaviors in their repertoires and master higher levels of functioning. Grounded in a philosophy that recognizes parents as vital team members, both TPBA and TPBI can be used effectively with children who have disabilities, children who are at risk for developmental delays, and children who do not have disabilities. This convenient package contains five tablets, each with all the necessary assessment and intervention worksheets for TPBA and TPBI. Each tablet includes instructions and provides forms in an 8 1/2 x 11 easy-to-use format. These attractive forms, ready to drop into a three-ring binder, make individualized child planning a lot simpler.
