Date of Birth: 11/10/11
Date of Evaluation: 10/14/14

School: Pre-school
Age: 2 years, 11 months, 4 days

Background and Referral Information:

I completed my Denver child development test on a two (turns three the day this
report is due!) year old girl who we will call E. My mom helped me set this test
up because Es grandmother is my moms boss. I requested that the test be set
up, and both my mom and I communicated with Es mom to schedule the test. I
drove to their house back in my hometown over fall break to perform the test. E,
her mom, and I sat at the kitchen table and E was very excited. E was a very
typical three-year-old girl. Before the test, we played in her room with her Barbie
dolls and play kitchen while her mom finished up something. We played outside
for a bit after the test. She enjoys swinging and playing in her sandbox. E likes
typical girly things. I noticed many books around her room, which is a great sign
for children before they get to Kindergarten. This test was conducted to see
where E fell developmentally. I instructed her mom what the test was for, and
she had no problem with it. This test was conducted to see if E was developing
slowly, normally, or advanced.
Test Administered:
The Denver-II is a developmental screening test for children up to age six. It was
published in 1967 and is used to identify developmental problems in young
children. The Denver-II is used in many health clinics, private practices, and early
education programs. It has been translated in many languages and has been
standardized in more than twelve countries. The test assesses a childs
performance on various age-appropriate tasks and screens for possible
problems. It compares a childs performance to the performance over other
same-age children. The Denver-II consists of 125 tasks in four categories:
personal-social, fine motor-adaptive, language, and gross motor. The Denver-II
does not predict later development.
Observations during testing:
E responded well to the test I performed on her. She sat still the whole time,
listened, and behaved. She did what I asked her to do. She was shy at times, but
she performed all of the tasks how she was supposed to. Before the test, she
was playing in her room. After the test, she was going to take a nap. We both
played together before the test. She enjoys dolls and playing house. During the

test, she did not ask any questions or get off task. She simply listened and was
very well behaved. She was wearing pink leggings, a top, and no shoes. There
were a couple instances where her mom said, oh, I know she knows this! Shes
just being shy. This could have influenced maybe one or two of the tasks, but
she performed everything to the left of the line and on the line exactly how she
was supposed to, and failed the tasks to the right of the line that she was
supposed to fail. E did not refuse to do any of the tasks.
Test Results:
The test reveals that E is developing normally. She only had one caution; she
failed one of the tasks that the line intersected. She cannot brush her teeth
without help. She failed what she was supposed to fail to the right of the line.
She passed everything to the left of the line and all but one that the line
intersected. She even passed some of the tasks to the right of the line! If
anything, she is developing at the same rate or even faster than other children
her age. I was very impressed with E, and I definitely think she is developing well
for her age. I was impressed with all of the learning toys and books in her room. I
can tell that her parents are involved in emerging her in oral language and
reading before Kindergarten. Because of this, she will most likely succeed in
reading when she enters school. She might have even passed more of the tasks
to the right of the line, but her mom said she was acting a little bit shy. As far as I
was concerned, she did great! The testing conditions were great and she
responded very well.
I think that E, her parents, and daycare/preschool should continue doing exactly
what they are doing. She is developing just as she should be.
