In 250 words, Interpreting and Using Assessment Results

Case study

Roberto is a 3-year-old boy in the childcare center where you work. Your center uses the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3) to screen all children in your care. Roberto scored above the cutoff point in all areas on the ASQ-3 except for communication, where his score was far below the cutoff point, which indicates a need for further assessment. Please answer the following questions (please do not read other classmate responses until you have responded).

As early childhood professionals, we can always use additional assessment data to form a complete assessment on a child.

  1. Based on the scores on the ASQ-3, what would you recommend for further assessment and why?
  2. Please be sure to discuss the limitations of a screening instrument such as the ASQ-3 and appropriate uses of screening results.

    Further assessment indicated that Roberto had a significant language delay, and qualified for language intervention from a speech pathologist through the public school system.

  3. How could you as the early childhood professional in the home childcare center link these assessment results to your instruction?
  4. Please give specific examples and be sure that these are based on developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) and scientifically based practice.
