Developmental Evaluation Services for Children: Replication Manual.

This manual describes in detail the Developmental Evaluation Services for Children program (DESC), a model interdisciplinary project funded to help others implement similar diagnostic and treatment services for young children with developmental difficulties. Section 1 gives an overview of the DESC project and describes the evaluation process in detail. Criteria for referral and acceptance complete this section. Section 2 describes the assessment process and the diagnostic nursery. In addition, two charts depict the assessment procedures: one summarizes the basic diagnostic questions addressed by each discipline; the other summarizes procedures used by each discipline. Sections 3 and 4 describe the administrative and professional responsibilities and functions in the DESC model. Section 5 suggests alternatives for staffing a DESC-type program which, while preserving the basic concept, requires less staff. (Author/MP)
