Early Identification: Screening and Assessment

EAD708 - Early Identification: Screening and Assessment


EAD602 Brain Research and Cognitive Development

It is critical that developmental unfolding be monitored in the early years so that those children at risk for developmental delays, mental disorders, health problems or disabling conditions can be identified and receive intervention services in a timely fashion. Students will learn that screening and assessment are part of the continuum of intervention and not only a means of identification. Students will gain insights into the range of screening and assessment instruments frequently used with families and children zero to six years of age, with an emphasis placed on those measures that use play and functional observations in familiar and naturalistic settings. Applied practice will be exercised through planning strength-based family-focused intervention strategies.
