Recommended Practices 1.Be brief 2.Focus on developmental tasks 3.Sample wide-range of developmental areas 4.Provide reliability and validity into including sensitivity and specificity 5.Include referral and follow up guidelines 6.Should be formal—standardized or norm references 7.Should be culturally and linguistically relevant. Why is it important to have follow-up procedures for screenings?  Very limited o Not comprehensive, just giving an idea  Sensitivity o Probably not picking up everyone at risk  Specificity o At risk children…. Follow up! Limitations of screenings  Only answer yes, no and maybe to “is this child at risk or developmental delay?”
