I-PAS Manual

$15.95 each

The I-PAS play assessment provides the framework for teachers and other professionals to determine development by observing children (birth to 60 months) at play.
The Infant-Preschool Play Assessment Scale (I-PAS) is a criterion referenced assessment instrument that enables teachers, clinicians and other caregivers to systematically observe children (birth to 60 months) at play and in other routine or natural environments for the purpose of:
  • determining a child\\\'s developmental level of functioning
  • identifying developmental gaps, skill deficits and emerging skills
  • evaluating child progress; and,
  • evaluating program effectiveness.
The scale lists behaviors in developmental sequence beginning at birth and continuing to age five. While the sequence of skills is based on current literature and practical experience, it represents general child development and mayor may not represent the development of a particular child. The purpose of the scale is to provide the observer with a frame of reference and general guidelines of "normal" child development.
The I-PAS may be used in a variety of ways. In a multidisciplinary setting, it may be used to help professional evaluators determine the presence of disabilities in children who have been referred for diagnostic evaluation. It also may be used by teachers to help them plan activities for entire classrooms as well as for individual children. Because it requires few, if any, formal arrangements and specific tools, the I-PAS also may be used to monitor child progress on an on-going basis in the child\\\'s natural environments at home or in a center or play group.
