Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Herschel W. Nisonger Center.
The manual describes seven tools for use in screening and assessing the developmentally disabled infant and young child in the home. Instruments are said to have met four criteria (easy adaptation to the home setting, minimum training required to administer, speed of administration, and minimum equipment needed). Five categories of information are addressed for each instrument: basic information (title, authors, publication date, publisher, purpose, age, application, screening or assessment use, areas assessed, standardization, reliability, validity, and criteria for referral); administration and scoring; time required for administration; training required for administration and interpretation; and advantages/disadvantages of the tool. The following instruments are analyzed: Denver Developmental Screening Test; Developmental Screening Inventory; Nutrition/Feeding Screening; Early Intervention Developmental Profile; Callier-Azuza Scale; Milani-Comparetti, Gidoni Developmental Chart; and Home Observation for Measurement of the Environment.
