Community Childcare Providers' Role in the Early Detection of Autism Spectrum Disorders
Branson, Diane; Vigil, Debra C.; Bingham, Ann
Early Childhood Education Journal, v35 n6 p523-530 Jun 2008
The first few years of life represent a crucial period for optimal brain development for young children. Therefore, it is important to identify children at-risk for developmental delays, including autism spectrum disorders, at the earliest age possible. An argument for utilizing community childcare providers for universal developmental screening is presented along with suggestions for assessment tool selection and a model for developmental monitoring in community childcare settings.
