The purpose of screening is to identify infants and toddlers who should be referred for evaluation for possible developmental, health, or sensory concerns. The Performance Standards do not require that a specific screening instrument or strategy be used. Rather, they require grantees to perform or obtain linguistically, culturally, and age-appropriate screening procedures.
