[xmca] A suitable term for "zpd aware"?

Quoting J. Hunt in the introduction to "The Montessori Method", written

"[...]  If a teacher can discern what a child is trying to do in his
informational interaction with the environment, and if that teacher can
have on hand materials relevant to that intention, if he can impose a
relevant challenge with which the child can cope, supply a relevant model
for imitation, or pose a relevant question that the child can answer, that
teacher can call forth the kind of accommodative change that constitutes
psychological development or growth.  This sort of thing was apparently the
genius of Maria Montessori."

What would folk call this skill, under the umbrella of a single term?  How
about "mediational appreciation"?
