The Early Year's Sreening Assesment

The Screening Assessment is designed to identify children that may have mild to severe learning related problems. The purpose of the service is to reliably and quickly screen for the presence of developmental delays in each of the following areas:

Sensory-Motor
Language &
Literacy

The screening will show if the child is functioning within the typical range or whether there is need for further diagnostic evaluation. This joint diagnostic initiative is a positive way forward for children who manifest the following:

Delayed language
Speech & articulation difficulties
Sensory processing difficulties
Auditory processing difficulties
Co-ordination difficulties
Immature phonological awareness
Handwriting difficulties
Rationale for Screening in Early Years

Developmental Screening is an important function of health care professionals. Early identification of developmental disorders and children “at risk” for school related problems can result in effective intervention at an early age. Researchers over the years have provided strong evidence of the effectiveness of early childhood intervention compared to no intervention.

The aim of the screening assessment is to help identify these children early and before they experience failure at school. For this reason an assessment module for the initial screening of children preparing to enter reception has been developed. Diagnostic information will enable parents and educators to plan for future management of those “at risk” thus enabling them to access the curriculum more effectively.

The screening assessment will be administered jointly by an Occupational and a Speech and Language Therapist and detailed feedback will be provided to parents and educators. The screening will cover the following areas:

Developmental History
Sensory Processing
Gross & Fine motor skills
Speech & Language
Literacy Skills
Numeracy skills
