Dear Visitors:
Federal funding for this website ended in 2003, therefore few materials have been added since that time. Fortunately, there is continued interest in culturally and appropriate materials, curriculum, and programs. Because of this, we have allowed this site to remain as an archive. Please feel free to use this site, but recognize that it is no longer current.

A couple of short open-ended questions are included to obtain further information when needed. There is a section to report comments and observationsother than the listed tasks, and to indicate necessary follow upservices. The tool is available in English and Chinese.

The questionnaire can be administered by direct observation of the child and/or by interviewing the caregiver. This screening instrument could be administered by speech-language pathologists, child development specialists, professional childcare providers or other related professionals.
