The Developmental Profile 3 (DP-3) allows practitioners to quickly screen a child (birth-12 years 11 months) for developmental delays in five key areas
The new third edition adds norm-based standard scores, an expanded age range, updated item content, clearer interpretive guidelines, new empirical studies demonstrating its reliability and validity, and the option for unlimited computer scoring and interpretation.
The DP-3 is designed to be administered in interview format - i.e. an interview of the child's parent or caregiver. The DP-3 Interview Form is used by the examiner to collate the responses provided by the parent/caregiver, in relation to if children possess the skill (YES) or they have not yet mastered the ability (NO) of the task covered in each administration item.
