The Developmental Assessment of Young Children Second Edition (DAYC-2) can be used to identify possible delays in the areas of cognition, communication, social-emotional development, physical development and adaptive behaviour.
The domains can be assessed independently, so examiners may test only the domains that interest them or test all five domains when a measure of general development is desired.
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 as an evaluation tool independently in specific clinical circumstances that do not require a full assessment.
