With Chaya Kulkarni (BAA, M.Ed, Ed.D)Director, Infant Mental Health Promotion, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto
Research has demonstrated that early identification and intervention is crucial to increasing the likelihood of positive outcomes for children identified as at risk for developmental delay. There are a variety of approaches for gathering information about a child and their environment. Understanding and being able to observe typical and atypical social and emotional development in infants and toddlers is imperative to formulating appropriate plans for referrals and interim strategies to support development. Likewise the use of validated screening and assessment tools to determine a child’s developmental status can then be used to clearly guide professionals and caregivers in identifying areas of concern, necessary supports, resources and services. This workshop will provide an overview and introduction to a variety of methods and tools for observation and screening with the 0 - 5 population. The Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ:3R and ASQ-Social-Emotional) will be highlighted as examples of effective screening tools. Participants will also learn about the advantages of involving parents in the assessment process including cost-effectiveness and improved accuracy of assessment due to their ability to observe their child across a variety of domains. Learning Objectives:1. Understand the importance of early developmental screening and observation for infants and young children.2. Become familiar with a variety of observational frameworks and methods.3. Understand the key components of an effective screening or assessment tool.4.
