Early childhood professionals: the new "Transdisciplinary Play-Based System" is here, and it's better than ever! For 15 years, this highly acclaimed linked system has been one of the most natural, easy-to-use assessment and intervention approaches for children birth to age six - and now it's been completely revised and updated so it's even more effective and user-friendly.Why choose "TPBA2" and "TPBI2"? This popular system gets accurate assessment results and improves child outcomes because it's: play-based, so children are relaxed, engaged, and motivated enough to show the full range of their skills and abilities; child-directed, so it encourages spontaneity and creativity and is easy to use in home-based settings; strengths-focused, assessing what children can do instead of what they can't; and, parent-friendly, tapping into the invaluable expertise of those who know the child best.Current "TBPA/I" users will find the basics unchanged.Professionals start with "TPBA2", a comprehensive, easy-to-follow guide to assessment with in-depth child development information.
While the child engages in natural play with a parent, professionals use the practical guidelines and useful developmental information to assess 4 domains - sensorimotor, emotional and social, communication and language, and cognition - and gather qualitative information about what the child can do.Then, with "TBPI2", professionals partner with parents to choose customized play-based interventions that help children make progress across domains and generalize their new skills in different situations and settings.All forms needed to execute "TPBA2" and "TPBI2" are included in the manuals and are photocopiable. For ease of use, the forms are also sold separately. Paper forms come in a gummed tablet that includes one each of the 7 essential forms needed for assessment and intervention (one tablet per child).
