Join us at the Zero To Three 2019 Fort Lauderdale Conference! Kyle Pruett M.D. and Kimberly Martini Carvell M.A. are presenting at the Hot Topics Session October 3 at 6:45 P.M. in the Atlantic Ballroom 2:
An Infant-Toddler Assessment with Feeling; Up-to-date use of a truly comprehensive, intervention- based assessment.
With growing attention on increasing numbers of young children identified with mental health and behavioral concerns, it is essential to understand and assess the emergence of psychosocial development in very young children. In this session we look at indicators of the quality of a child’s relationship to others, the range and quality of feelings or affects that are part of the developing child’s emotional repertoire and coping behavior. To understand and utilize these indicators for intervention planning, it is necessary to observe and assess a child’s ability to adapt and apply his/her capabilities and skills to meet the demands of daily living. We review the Infant–Toddler Developmental Assessment (IDA-2), which integrates social, emotional, and coping milestones into comprehensive global developmental assessment, with attention to parent report and health variables. (The original assessment, developed by Sally Provence, MD, and her colleagues at Yale.)
Kyle D. Pruett, MD, past president of ZERO TO THREE. clinical professor of psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine, and IDA-2 co-author.
