Development Screening for Early Childhood Readiness

Does your school need a developmental screening tool to help determine early childhood readiness? Then the Comprehensive Identification Process (CIP) is the perfect tool for you.

Appropriate for children between the ages of 2 and 6 1/2 years of age, the CIP helps identify children who may need special medical, psychological or educational assistance to function at their highest possible level upon entering grade school.

The screening process takes 30-45 minutes with children performing a series of tasks at the appropriate age intervals. The development screenings areas include: Cognitive-Verbal, Perceptual Motor, Gross Motor, and Speech and Expressive Language. The CIP screening is designed to give recommendations for follow-up such as a vision or hearing test or a complete medical examination. Because CIP screening results in alternative recommendations, it prevents the labeling of a child; prevents the comparison of the children’s scores; and permits the consideration of overall behavior.

Screening should be done by early childhood professionals or trained paraprofessionals in a preschool or medical setting.
