DAYC-2
Developmental Assessment of Young Children-Second Edition

Judith K. Voress & Taddy Maddox

Description


Used to identify children with possible delays in areas mandated for assessment and intervention by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA). Examiners may test only some or all five domains.

Subdomain scores are provided for receptive language and expressive language within the Communication Domain and for gross motor and fine motor within the Physical Development Domain.

How to Use the Asssessment
The DAYC-2 format allows you to obtain information about a child’s abilities through observation, interview of caregivers, and direct assessment. The DAYC-2 may also be used in arena assessment so that each discipline can use the evaluation tool independently.

Using the DAYC-2, clinicians will be able to obtain standard scores, percentile scores, and age equivalents. The test also provides a General Development Quotient (GDQ) if all five subtests are completed, but all subtests can be used independently for each domain.
