Using the Early Childhood Screens III for Developmental Screening
Early childhood educators learn how the BRIGANCE Early Childhood Screens III (0–35 months, 3–5 years, and/or K & 1) can help quickly and accurately screen for potential developmental delays as well as advanced development or academic talent for children from birth through first grade.
Hands-on screening and scoring activities ensure that all participants leave the session fully prepared to administer and score the Core Assessments of a screen. If applicable, participants learn how to complete and score the Self-help and Social-Emotional Scales, which are administered separately through a teacher/parent report.
This session includes an introduction to the free online Screens III scoring tools. Other optional resources, such as the Supplemental Assessments, Screening Information Forms, Parent and Teacher Feedback Forms, and Reading Readiness Scale, are also covered so participants leave the session confident in using all parts of the Early Childhood Screens III.
