    Dr. Toni Linder is Professor Emeritus in the Child, Family, and School Psychology Program at the Morgridge College of Education at the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado. Dr. Linder has been a leader in the development of authentic assessment for young children and is known for her work on Transdisciplinary Play-Based Assessment and Transdisciplinary Play-Based Intervention (1990, 1993, 2008). In addition, she developed Read, Play, and Learn (1999), an inclusive, literature and play-based curriculum for preschool and kindergarten learning and development. She consults nationally and internationally on assessment, intervention, early childhood education, program development, and family involvement issues. Dr. Linder has conducted research on a variety of issues, including transdisciplinary influences on development, parent-child interaction, curriculum outcomes, and using technology for professional development in rural areas.

    In 2012 Dr. Linder formed Early Learning Dynamics LLC to serve as a platform for her continuing consulting, curriculum development, and play-based assessments. Dr. Linder will use Early Learning Dynamics to serve children worldwide.

    Transdisciplinary Play-Based Assessment, Second Edition (TPBA2) is a comprehensive, easy-to-follow process for assessing four critical developmental domains—sensorimotor, emotional and social, communication, and cognitive—through observation of the child's play with family members, peers, and professionals. In this volume, early childhood professionals will get

    • step-by-step instructions on how to prepare for a successful assessment
    • practical guidelines on how to conduct every part of the observation and gather qualitative information about the child's skills
    • the clearest research-based explanations of birth-to-six child development
    • detailed age tables (expanded and updated for this edition) that show what typical development looks like month by month and enable identification of child skill levels for quantitative data documentation
    • vivid examples that illustrate key behaviors and challenges in assessment
    • new tools and process guidelines for obtaining information from parents

    View our recorded webinar: Transdisciplinary Play-Based Assessment and Intervention for Young Children presented by Tori Linder.

    The thoroughly updated second edition of TPBA2 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
