Assessment of Social and Emotional Development in the Context of Relationships

Emotional well-being and social competence are the foundation of human development, yet difficulties in this area are often not identified during initial evaluations and assessments of young children. Many states have identified improving their assessment of social and emotional skills as one of the coherent improvement strategies in their State Systemic Improvement Plans (SSIPs). What special considerations are there when assessing the social and emotional development of young children compared to other skills? When is it appropriate to use a comprehensive tool versus a social and emotional assessment? These questions will be discussed in this webinar jointly presented by the National Center for Systemic Improvement (NCSI) and the Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (ECTA). The presenters for this webinar are Dr. Molly Witten (Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis, and the Erikson Institute) and Dr. Jane Squires (Center on Human Development, Early Intervention Program, University of Oregon).
