dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to determine what assessment instruments and methods were being implemented within public elementary schools across the state of Texas to assist in the diagnosis of children suspected of having pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs). Results indicated that assessment professionals across Texas were using similar assessment approaches and were relying on both standardized and non-standardized measures. However, the overall use of effective standardized assessments, as indicated in the current literature, was mixed. Also, the results suggested that many professionals across Texas were not applying least-biased assessment approaches appropriately to culturally and linguistically diverse populations with PDDs.en_US
