developmental screening
Developmental Screening
  • Screening is a brief…procedure designed to quickly evaluate a large number of children to determine who should be referred for further assessment.
  • Screening is not an end in itself. Screening instruments are “early alert systems” that can help to focus assessment and observation.
  • Eligibility, intervention, and delayed entry into kindergarten decisions should not be made solely from screening results.
