Have A Seat! Learning What Children Know Through Play

Thu June 22, 2017: 11:00 am-12:30 pm EDT

Event Navigation

Children's toy balls

When we want to understand what children know and can do, we often turn to tests and other conventional assessment practices. However, what really allows us to get to know children is when we sit beside them and play. This webinar provides a context for seeing authentic assessment as the means by which we get to know children and foster their development and learning. Recommended practices and research on how to assess children during play are provided.

Continuing Education (CE) Credit

**Update**

Due to COVID-19, the ability to access face-to-face professional development has become very limited.  Thus the Early Intervention Training Program (EITP) has agreed to offer CE credit for this archived MFLN Early Intervention webinar for ILLINOIS providers through Dec. 31, 2020.  Individuals seeking CE credit to be used towards other state or agency credentials should contact their credentialing/licensing agency for guidance.
