Product Details

The Ounce Scale comprises three core components:
 
The Observation Record provides a focus for observing and documenting children’s everyday behaviors and provides data for making evaluations. 
 
The Family Album offers a structure for parents to learn about and record their child’s development.
 
The Developmental Profile enables caregivers and other staff to evaluate each child’s development and progress over time, comparing their observations.

Benefits

  • Presents a highly reliable, criterion-referenced measure based on specific developmental standards.
  • Helps meet Early Head Start and federal assessment requirements.
  • Allows you to gather information from multiple perspectives, giving a more well-rounded picture of the child’s development.
  • Takes a natural, whole-child approach to observation.
  • Helps educate parents so that they can become more involved in decisions about their children.
  • Supports early intervention for at-risk kids.

Features

Designed for use with infants and toddlers, The Ounce Scale is organized around six major developmental areas:

  • Personal connections: How children show they trust you.
  • Feelings about self: How children express who they are.
  • Relationships with other children: What children do around other children.
  • Understanding and communicating: How children understand and communicate.
  • Exploration and problem solving: How children explore and figure things out.
  • Movement and coordination: How children move their bodies and use their hands to do things.
