Screens the five major developmental areas
Early Screening Profiles is an indispensable tool that uses multiple domains, settings, and sources to measure cognitive, language, motor, self-help, and social development. It also surveys the child's articulation, home environment, health history, and test behavior. The result is an ecologically valid assessment that provides a wealth of practical information to help you make accurate screening decisions, as well as plan intervention strategies for children and their families.
Appealing test items
Professionals and allied professionals in educational, medical, or community settings will appreciate ESP's clear directions, simple scoring system, and test items that appeal to the very young. This, coupled with straightforward parent and teacher questionnaires, makes ESP efficient and easy to use.
Flexible, quick screening
The three basic components, called Profiles, are supplemented by four Surveys. You can administer all of the profiles and surveys-or just the ones you need. For most children the Profiles can be administered in less than 30 minutes. The Surveys require an additional 15-20 minutes.
Three Profiles
• Cognitive/Language Profile is administered individually to the child. Tasks assess reasoning skills, visual organization and discrimination, receptive and expressive vocabulary, and basic school skills. The profile can be separated into cognitive (nonverbal) and language (verbal) subscales, a useful feature for screening children with limited English proficiency, language difficulties, or hearing problems.
• Motor Profile, also individually administered, assesses both gross and fine motor skills-such as walking a straight line, imitating arm and leg movements, tracing mazes, and drawing shapes.
• Self-Help/Social Profile is a questionnaire completed by the child's parent, teacher, daycare provider, or a combination of them. It assesses the child's typical performance in the areas of communication, daily living skills, socialization, and motor skills.
Four Surveys
• Articulation Survey measures the child's ability to pronounce 20 words selected to test common articulation problems in the initial, medial, and final positions of words.
• Home Survey is completed by the parent and asks nonintrusive questions about the child's home environment.
• Health History Survey, also completed by the child's parent, is a brief checklist of any health problems the child has had.
• Behavior Survey is used by the examiner to rate the child's behavior during administration of the Cognitive/Language and Motor Profiles. The child is rated in categories such as attention span, frustration tolerance, and response style.
Years of research make ESP technically sound
A national sample of 1,149 children, ages 2 years 0 months through 6 hears 11 months, was tested between October and December. The sample was stratified by sex, geographic region, parent education level, and race or ethnic group.
Components
ESP's three basic components, called Profiles, as supplemented by four Surveys. For most children, the total time needed for the three Profiles is under 30 minutes. The Surveys, completed by a parent, teacher, or screening examiner, require an additional 15 - 20 minutes.
Plus, ESP
• Is an excellent predictor of later development and school achievement.
• Meets federal guidelines and mandates.
• Can be administered by allied health professionals, allowing professionals to focus on children identified as needing more comprehensive assessment.
• Represents the first nationally standardized screener to provide users with a manual that reports the results of predictive, concurrent, and construct validity studies conducted during the two-year time period between standardization and test publication. The manual also includes information regarding internal consistency, immediate and delayed test-retest reliability, and Screens the five major developmental areas
