The Minnesota Child Development Inventory--Some Possibilities.
Ireton, Harold
This paper discusses early identification of children with developmental handicaps, a subject highlighted recently through the creation of federal and state sponsored Early Periodic Screening Programs (EPSDT). The Minnesota Child Development Inventory (MCDI) provides a systematic means of obtaining parental (usually maternal) information about the child's current development. The presentation discusses the validity of the MCDI and the development of other inventories focused on the assessment of school readiness (Minnesota Preschool Inventory--MPI) and the assessment of infant development (Minnesota Infant Development Inventory--MIDI). The MIDI attempts to integrate developmental and educational concepts and to provide guidance to the mother regarding the development and stimulation of her infant. (Author)
