ESI™-3 is a revision of the successful ESI™-R, a popular developmental screening instrument designed to be individually administered to children ages 3:0–5:11. It identifies children who may need special education services in order to perform successfully in school.
The advantages of parent involvement.
The ESI-3 now includes a questionnaire to capture the primary caregivers' perceptions of the child's development. Adapted from the ESI-R Parent Questionnaire, the ESI-3 Parent Questionnaire has added new items that reflect current research in social-emotional development and adaptive behaviors (e.g., interactions with adults and peers, social communication, and self-help skills).
