While I think this video is a good starting point, I think it misses some key issues. I teach exceptional children at a community college, and two things I stress are, 1) many instruments used on young children are not reliable and not valid (especially when used by people who are not trained and on diverse students), and 2) there is a very unhealthy tendency by some teachers to automatically categorize children, instead of first exploring ways to change the environment and their approach to teaching. And the reality is that once a child has a label, the label does follow the child.
