The CSBS DP (TM) Infant-Toddler Checklist and Easy-Score CD-ROM with accompanying User's Guide is an easy-to-use system that allows busy clinicians to quickly screen communication skills in young children ages 6-24 months.
Caregivers take 5-10 minutes to respond to 24 multiple choice questions about their child's communication, and professionals enter the responses and view the scores with the concise, step-by-step instructions in the User's Guide.
The Easy-Score software:- Tallies raw scores in seven clusters (Emotion and Eye Gaze, Communication, Gestures, Sounds, Words, Understanding, and Object Use) and three composites (Social, Speech, and Symbolic). - Calculates standard scores and composite percentiles based on embedded norms, so professionals can compare the child's communicative behavior to that of other children in his or her peer group. - Provides an easy way to monitor communication development every 3 months between the ages of 6 and 24 months. - Makes correspondence and record keeping easier by automatically generating a screening report to add to the child's health record and providing a menu of three letters clinicians can use to share personalized results and recommendations with the family.With the CD-ROM and User's Guide - which includes clear instructions on using the Easy-Score program, guidelines for interpreting results, detailed technical data, and answers to frequently asked questions - clinicians, pediatricians, and Child Find programs have all the information they need to use this quick, validated screening system with young children.This product is part of CSBS DP (TM), an easy-to-use, norm-referenced screening and evaluation tool that helps determine the communicative competence (use of eye gaze, gestures, sounds, words, understanding, and play) of young children.
CSBS DP is an ideal starting point for IFSP planning and can be used as a guide to indicate areas that need further assessment.
