Abstract

Sound intervention strategies need to be based on a careful assessment of developmental and life span issues in children and adults. To be effective, intervention requires the evaluator to forego all preconceived notions of what the child or adult need but rather to assess the intervention needs of this particular child or adult at this specific point in time in the context of current life circumstances.
