Developmental Screening and Montessori

1.5 CPDs, Run time 39:57

This webinar will give educators and school leaders an overview of developmental screenings. Like another tool in the tool belt, developmental screening can complement existing Montessori practices such as observation and record-keeping, to give us a full picture of the young child's development. The presenters will introduce the cycle of screening, the purposes of screening, and considerations when teachers conduct screenings in the Montessori classroom. Several common screening tools will be discussed as well as how to select a screening tool that matches what your school and families need. The presenters will share evidence-based strategies to share developmental information and concerns with families and offer next steps after screening.
