Quick Guide to Rating the Measures

1. Review your documentation/evidence

Review your observation notes, observations from others (including teachers, family members/caregivers, and other service providers, obtained through interview or conversations), and other documentation, including samples of children’s work, photographs, and video/audio recordings of children’s communication and behavior.

2. Carefully read the definition and the descriptors, looking for mastery

Read the descriptors and try to narrow down which one is most consistent with your observations and other documentation of the child’s typical behavior. A developmental level is mastered if the child demonstrates the knowledge, behaviors, or skills defined at that level:

  • Consistently over time
  • In different situations or settings
3. Consider the examples

Refer to the full DRDP (2015) Preschool Fundamental View Instrument for examples. The examples represent only some of the possible ways a child might demonstrate mastery. They are not a checklist of what the child must demonstrate. It is possible that a child does not demonstrate any of the specific examples provided, but does demonstrate mastery in other ways that are consistent with the intent of the descriptor.

4. Determine the child’s level of mastery

Once you’ve determined the latest developmental level the child has mastered, mark it appropriately.

5. Indicate if the child is emerging

If your observations indicate that the child has demonstrated mastery for a developmental level and is also beginning to demonstrate knowledge, skills, or behaviors described for the next level (although not yet consistently across situations or settings), the child may be emerging to the next level.

Important Note: When reading the descriptors, be sure you understand and pay attention to semicolons and the words “or” and “and.” Most descriptors define a single skill or behavior, but some include more than one. If the descriptor includes:

  • The word “or” – the child only needs to demonstrate the behavior in one of the ways listed for the developmental level to be considered mastered.
  • The word “and” – all parts of the descriptor are required for mastery and need to be observed together.
  • A semi-colon (;) followed by the word “and” – the child must demonstrate all the behaviors listed to master the level, but not necessarily during the same observation.

The Seven Categories of Adaptations

1. Augmentative or alternative communication system

Methods of communication other than speech that allow a child who is unable to use spoken language to communicate.

2. Alternative Mode for Written Language

Methods of reading or writing used by a child who cannot see well enough to read or write or cannot hold and manipulate a writing utensil well enough to produce written symbols.

3. Visual Support

Adjustments to the environment that provide additional information to a child who has limited or reduced visual input.

4. Assistive Equipment or Device

Tools that make it possible or easier for a child to perform a task.

5. Functional Positioning

Strategic positioning and postural support that allow a child to have increased control of his body.

6. Sensory Support

Increasing or decreasing sensory input to facilitate a child’s attention and interaction in the environment.

7. Alternative Response Mode

The form of a child’s behavior may differ from typical development (such as avoiding looking at people while speaking to them) but still be rated as demonstrating mastery. This adaptation allows for differences in the child’s behavior rather than modifications to the environment.
