The Developmental Assessment of Young Children - Second Edition (DAYC-2) is an assessment used to identify children birth through 5 years 11 months with possible delays in the 5 domains (Cognition, Communication, Social-emotional development, Physical development and Adaptive behaviour).
The domains can be assessed independently, so examiners may test the domains that interest them or test all five domains when a measure of general development is desired.
The DAYC-2 format allows examiners to obtain information about a child's abilities through observation, interview of caregivers, and direct assessment.
The DAYC-2 Early Childhood Development Chart Mini Poster is a supplementary component, and is not a required when assessing using the DAYC-2.
The Poster provides a graphic summary of the developmental milestones across all the DAYC-2 domains (for children from 0-5 years). The chart is useful for use with parents, who may need some more information on child development.
