Comprehensive Developmental Screening Model.
Griggs, Ruth Marie, Ed.
A comprehensive developmental screening model (CDSM) was designed to help local education agencies (LEAs), in Indiana, plan, develop, and implement screening programs for 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old children. The CDSM is presented in three parts; Part I provides both empirical and philosophical support to the reasons for developing a screening program; Part II addresses individual components of the screening process for planning through instrument selection to implementation and method of delivery; and Part III provides some guidelines to assist the screening coordinators involved in actual implementation of the screening procedure. To validate the usefulness of the CDSM, three LEAs were selected to pilot-test the procedures. Four criteria were considered in selecting these pilot sites: geographic location; diversity of population; size of population; and local need and interest. Summary of the pilot sites screening programs along with some recommendations based on evaluating the administration of the total program and the implementation procedure of the pilot sites, are presented in Appendix D. Other appendices include instrument reviews and summary charts, a list of participating organizations, parent communications and references. (Author/MP)
