Input Needed for Early Childhood Screening
January 19, 2012

The Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) invites public review and comment on the state’s proposed grant application and new and revised policies and procedures under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The PCPA Early Childhood Mental Health work group is reviewing the draft application section on Screening, Evaluation, and Assessment in Early Intervention.  This section has significant implications related to the effective screening for social, emotional, and mental health risks and conditions. The work group is also asking members to review the current OCDEL Child Health Report  form CD 51 (the last page of the linked document). This health report form is required for children in child care programs. The work group would like to recommend changes to help primary care professionals include social, emotional, and mental health information to child care providers.

Please review these materials and forward your recommendations to Connell O’Brien by February 9.
