Ages: birth through 5 years, 11 months
Testing time: 10 to 20 minutes for each domain
DAYC-2 helps identify children with possible delays in the following domains: cognition, communication, social-emotional development, physical development, and adaptive behavior. Scores are highly useful in designing early intervention programs.
Five individually administered subtests that collect information through observation, parent/caregiver interview, and direct assessment. Provides standard scores, percentile ranks, and age equivalents for each subtest, for several subdomains, and for overall development when all five subtests are administered.
Each domain reflects an area that is mandated by the IDEA for assessment and intervention for young children. The domains can be assessed independently, or you can choose all five for a measure of general development. Format allows you to obtain information through observation, interview of caregivers, and direct assessment; may be used in arena assessment so that each discipline can use the evaluation tool independently. Subdomain scores are provided for receptive and expressive language within the Communication Domain and for gross and fine motor within the Physical Development Domain.
Cognitive Domain (COG): measures conceptual skills, including skills that measure memory, purposive planning, decision making, and discrimination
Communication Domain (COM): measures skills related to sharing ideas, information, and feelings with others, both verbally and nonverbally. It is divided into two sub-domains: receptive language and expressive language
Social-Emotional Domain (SE): measures social awareness, social relationships, and social competence. These skills enable children to engage in meaningful social interactions with parents, caregivers, peers, and others in their environment.
Physical Development Domain (PD): measures motor development. It is divided into two sub-domains: gross motor and fine motor
Adaptive Behavior Domain (AB): measures independent, self-help functioning. Skills include toileting, feeding, dressing, and personal responsibility
The DAYC-2 was normed on a national sample of 1,832 children; characteristics of the normative sample approximate the 2010 census. Standard scores, percentile ranks, and age equivalents are provided for each domain, and for overall general development if all five domains are tested.
