Highlights of this third edition are: a- insights into the kind of high-quality collaborative assessment that is most likely to lead to effective interventions a- chapters discussing the specific challenges of assessment in children's and adult services a- careful analysis of the latest legislation and government guidance a- engaging features such as case studies, questions to challenge your perceptions, and thinking points to make you consider your own experience in the workplace.
