Screening programs in Minnesota have varying requirements of methods by which the developmental and social–emotional components of screening are met. The list below designates between parent report, observational, and social/emotional instruments.
The observational instruments listed are approved by the Minnesota Department of Education for Minnesota’s Early Childhood Screening program. The requirements for this program are outlined in Minnesota Rule 3530.3400 subpart 3.
This list is approved as of July, 2012 and will be updated in response to statutory, rule, or regulatory changes that impact Minnesota’s comprehensive screening programs. Additionally, the list will be updated as new or revised developmental screening instruments are reviewed.
The instruments listed under both the Parent Report and Observational headings do not meet the social-emotional component of developmental screening required in some screening programs. To accurately identify potential problems in children, use of a social–emotional screening instrument, regardless of program rule or requirement, is recommended as a best–practice strategy.
