Transdisciplinary Play-Based System (Assessment & Intervention)

Create customized play-based interventions that help children make real progress across four domains—sensorimotor, emotional and social, communication, and cognitive. With Transdisciplinary Play-Based Intervention, Second Edition (TPBI2), early childhood professionals will learn how to

  • address global outcomes as well as specific functional processes and behaviors as targets for intervention
  • scaffold intervention with a continuum of approaches, ranging from adult-directed to child-directed
  • support caregivers and children in learning strategies and skills to use throughout the day in natural environments
  • encourage generalization of skills across contexts and environments
  • evaluate child progress

The thoroughly updated second edition of TPBI2 features

  • Strong foundation in DEC and NAEYC guidelines
  • OSEP child outcomes crosswalk
  • Expanded content on critical topics such as literacy, vision, hearing, and daily living skills
  • Explicit links between assessment and intervention

With TPBI2, professionals will find it even easier to conduct effective, practical interventions that really improve young children's outcomes.

Review: The 18th Mental Measurement Yearbook
"Few other assessment and intervention programs can offer as extensive and converging perspectives as does the TPBA2 and TPBI2. The TPBA2 is strongly recommended for early childhood intervention assessments."
Review: Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities
"The ability to collaborate with other professionals, facilitate the involvement and empowerment of families in assessment and intervention, and provide services in natural settings are skills that are keys to success in practice . . . the transdisciplinary system described in the TPBA2 and TPBI2 is one that readily promotes these skills."
Review by: Shannon Haley-Mize, Early Interventionist, Institute for Disability Studies, University of Southern Mississippi
"Allows the family to be actively involved in the assessment, calls attention to play behaviors and engagement, and provides rich information that proved useful to intervention planning. TPBA/I are pivotal to providing quality services within the child's natural environment and integrating the child's goals into daily activities and routines."
Review by: Margie Larsen, Preschool Consultant, Educational Diagnostician
"Embedded in child development theory and research, TPBA/I 2 have revolutionized assessment methodologies for preschool age children . . . consistently yields comprehensive, rich data as evidence to develop intervention teaching strategies that address the development of the whole child."
