Child-guided Strategies: The Van Dijk Approach to Assessment                                            For understanding children and youth with sensory impairments and multiple disabilities

Dr. Jan van Dijk of the Netherlands shares his expertise related to Child-Guided Assessment. The child-guided manner of assessing children uses no standardized protocol or materials. Each assessment is truly unique as it follows the lead of the individual child. Critical to this process is the recognition that assessment and intervention must always occur “hand in glove” and that meaningful assessment guides intervention.
