“Special Education Assessment is concerned with the assessment of the total development of the learner, an approach which includes the developmental aspects of the preschool child. Special Education Assessment is taken not only to improve learning, but also to establish the learner more comfortably within the family and society, thereby broadening the use of assessment. The discussion in this book do not conflict the South African context and the current move towards the inclusive education approach but, instead, emphasize the need for the availability of educational support services. More importantly, they stress the need for early identification and a continuous of assessment. The book is easy to read and will serve as a springboard for further discussions among all the “special” people who have education at heart.”
