Determining what a New Voices child understands can be difficult. It is challenging to accurately assess a child’s potential when the child cannot speak or use his hands. It most often takes a team approach. An accurate assessment is necessary so that every New Voices child can be placed in the most appropriate and least restrictive learning environment and the teachers and therapists who work with the child can build on the child’s knowledge base.
