Curriculum Associates' BRIGANCE® Screens III Approved By Nevada Department Of Health And Human Services

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Curriculum Associates' BRIGANCE® Screens III has been approved by the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) as part of its early intervention services to meet Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). To help meet Part C requirements, which focus on children ages 0–35 months, educators in the state can use the BRIGANCE Screens III to receive an accurate assessment of skills that are critical predictors of a child's future school success.

The state's early intervention programs provide appropriate services to all infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families. As part of this, the BRIGANCE Screens III will help deliver a timely and multidisciplinary evaluation of the functioning of each infant and toddler with a disability in the state. In addition, the evaluation will help identify families' needs for assistance, which will assist in the creation of an Individualized Family Service Plan for each eligible child including service coordination guidance.

"The BRIGANCE Screens III provides educators with the most up-to-date, research-based assessment tool for conducting early interventions," said Katie Nicholson, Vice President of Assessment at Curriculum Associates. "The approval from the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services further reinforces the impact our screens have in accurately and reliably assessing the needs of young children and, in turn, providing them the early interventions they need to succeed when they begin school."

Using the age-appropriate screen, educators can quickly and accurately assess a child's physical development, language, academic/cognitive, self-help, and social-emotional skills, in just 10–15 minutes. The research base reflected in the BRIGANCE Screens III helps educators identify potential developmental delays and giftedness with new cutoffs; reduce over-referrals with at-risk cutoffs; determine each child's specific strengths and needs; and assess each child's school readiness.
