When one plans to explore the level of child development, sometimes it does not find an adapted instrument, to solve it of T.E.A. Editions has recently presented the development profile DP-3.
Evaluation of the development
That little ones change over time is a known reality, and also in childhood these changes are much faster than in other evolutionary stages, that is why it requires instruments adapted to the age of minor and explore different areas to check If the child's development is adjusted to what is expected or some intervention is needed.
The DP-3 development profile
It has been recently presented by T.E.A. Ediciones where they expose the adaptations to the Spanish population, with which to compare the results obtained.
It is a screening test to assess the presence of developmental problems and have been detected to see how they evolve over time or if they improve the intervention in case it is receiving.
This test evaluates five areas of child development: cognition, motor skills, emotional, communication and adaptive onducta.
Offering results on each of these areas in addition to a global development index.

Technical characteristics of the development profile DP-3
On the peculiarities of this evaluation comment that can be applied both individually and collectively, in approximately 35 minutes.
The test consists of an individualized interview or a questionnaire to be filled out by each parent, parent or caregiver of the child, consisting of six scales from 32 to 39 items.
The age of application of the test is from birth to 12 years and 11 months of the child in charge.
This application can be both in "paper" and by telematics, being able to be its online correction, also offering the reports and the interpretation of the results
The scope of this test includes the clinician and the school.
Rating Development Profile DP-3
To date there are many tools to assess one or another cognitive function of the child, to know if it is correct or not their development, but this time all these evaluations are realized in a single instrument, easy and quick application.
In addition, the application is on the parents rather than on the small ones further speeds up the performance of the test, since it does not include manipulative materials for the minor.
Precisely this advantage becomes one of the limitations of this test because it is based exclusively on the "opinion" of the parents or caregivers on the capacities of the child.
It is also necessary to establish the usefulness of this instrument in the presence of the most common developmental problems among minors, or in the case of autism or ADHD, to see if it is sensitive in these cases.
