Review your competency in preassessment planning with families by checking the appropriate column for each item identified below, using the following scale:

Awareness

I am aware of this but don't apply it in my work/interactions.

Knowledge

I understand it, and sometimes apply it in my work/interactions.

Application

I understand this and apply consistently it in my work/interactions.

Mastery

I understand and apply this well enough to teach/mentor others.

This self-assessment inventory can help identify areas for continued professional development for individuals and teams, and identify individuals who can mentor/coach others. It is designed as a reflection tool, not an evaluation of individual competencies.

Have I discussed with families:

Aware but don't apply

Sometimes
apply

Consistent application

Can teach & coach others

1. Preferences for how to communicate with family members/child

  

  

  

   

2. Child's participation (current and desired) in his/her daily settings and key family routines/activities

  

  

  

  

3. Child's health, development (abilities and challenges) and behavior

  

  

  

  

4. Child's previous evaluations and medical information, including vision and hearing

  

  

  

  

5. Priorities for a child and resources (supports/services)

  

  

  

  

6. What will happen during an evaluation/assessment

  

  

  

  

7. Eligibility criteria in Maryland

  

  

  

  

8. Early intervention supports/services available to eligible families in a child's daily settings/activities

  

  

  

  

9. Roles of service coordinator and qualified providers who will facilitate evaluation and assessment
