Summary: The DAYC is a developmental, multidomain assessment instrument that measures different but interrelated basic skills in cognition, communication, social-emotional development, physical development, and adaptive behavior. Clinicians, interventionists, early childhood educators, teachers, diagnosticians, and psychologists may find the test battery useful for identifying children who are developing normally and those who are developmentally delayed; for diagnosing children?s strengths and weaknesses in specific developmental areas; for documenting and evaluating children?s progress in special intervention programs; and for research studies. Examiners who give and interpret the DAYC should have received formal training in assessment and have a thorough understanding of testing statistics and general procedures governing test administration, scoring, and interpretation.
