California’s State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) has led to an increased focus statewide on the social and emotional development of infants and toddlers receiving early intervention services. This includes screening and assessment of social and emotional development in order to ensure that children with social-emotional challenges are identified, and that their progress in this area is accurately measured.

Developmental Screening and Assessment Instruments with an Emphasis on Social and Emotional Development for Young Children Ages Birth through Five is a helpful resource for parents and Early Start professionals. Compiled in 2008 by Sharon Ringwalt at the National Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (NECTAC), this publication features over 30 instruments for screening and assessing social and emotional development in young children. The information for each instrument includes a description, the age range for which the instrument was validated, the time to administer, the scoring procedure, psychometric properties, and requirements for administrators, and where to find the tool and/or get more information.
