For developmental screening to be effective, it should begin early in a child’s life- be repeated throughout early childhood; and use reliable, valid screening tools appropriate to the age, culture, and language of the child.This can be a challenge, since very few developmental screening tools are developed or tested with linguistically or culturally diverse samples of children. Further, practitioners may lack the technical training to review and compare complex psychometric information on the quality of developmental screening tools. This compendium has been created to help practitioners better understand this information and make informed choices about the developmental screening tools they use with children birth to age five.
