To whom it may concern:
As a professional in developmental disabilities field, I
believe it advantageous to upgrade my training. The
DPS/DISC Training Program has enabled me to become more
focused on areas of development specific for assessment.
Using the DISC has allowed me to develop a broader
knowledge of the available, and ultimately valuable,
tools for Child Development Professionals.
The work samples I completed, proved useful in not only
screening children (38-55 months) but in uncovering the
strengths within my class and individual programming. The
DISC kit was proven, through the work samples, to be time
friendly and unobtrusive when used in the centre. Through
prior' knowledge of the children's development (I'm their
teacher), the DISC proved to be an accurate screening
tool of the children in specific skill areas.
It is my hope the DPS/DISC will become a standard
screening tool for all Nova Scotian children, allowing
Child Development Professionals to better serve our
families and children.
