Child Development Tracker On-line screeningtool

These on-line child screening tools were developed with the following in mind

  • To assist parents and teacher to track a child’s development
  • To recognize a child’s strengths

To focus on these will build his/her self-esteem

  • To recognize a child’s limitations

The parents/teacher can then focus on this to facilitate improvement. If no improvement is seen it has to be considered to refer a child early on for an occupational therapy assessment.  The sooner a child with limitations starts seeing a therapist, the sooner a child will be able to reach his/her full potential

  • The screening tool should be repeated every 3 months’ time to track development and/or progress

 

There are 3 developmental areas to choose from as well as a Gr. 1 readiness assessment

  • 3 months – 18 months
  • 18 months – 3 years old
  • 3 years – 6 years old
  • 1 readiness assessment

 

 

These on-line screening tools can in NO way replace a full occupational therapy evaluation.
