“All children will have the opportunity to reach their developmental potential.”
Limitation of Liability
ndds® has created and provides the Checklists to assist parents, health care and child care professionals (users) with a convenient and easy to use method of recording the development and progress of infants and children within certain age groupings. The Checklists are not meant to be a substitute for the advice and/or treatment of health care and child care professionals trained to properly and professionally assess the development and progress of infants and children.
Although the Checklists may help users to determine when they need to seek out the advice and/or treatment of health care and child care professionals, users must still consult with competent health care and child care professionals for advice and/or treatment respecting specific children and their particular needs.
Users should bear in mind the following when using the Checklists:
(i) The needs of each infant/child are unique. Each infant/child will develop differently and as such, any perceived limitations in development must be reviewed by a health care and/or child care professional to be properly assessed;
(ii) While every effort has been made to make the Checklists as culturally, economically and geographically neutral as possible, it must be understood by users that they may still reflect some cultural, economic or geographic prejudices. As such, these prejudices may affect a specific infant’s/child’s results in a Checklist without actually reflecting a developmental limitation. Again, users should contact a health care and/or child care professional to review the needs of an individual infant/child;
(iii) The Checklists cannot contain every possible indicator of developmental limitations or goals to be met. As such, the Checklists are not designed for and should not be used to diagnose or treat perceived developmental limitations or other health needs.
NDDS® makes no representation or warranties, express or implied. This includes, but is not limited to, any implied warranty or merchantability of fitness for a particular use or purpose, and specifically disclaims any such warranties and representations.
NDDS® expressly disclaims any liability for loss, injury or damages incurred or occasioned as a consequence, directly or indirectly, of the use of the Checklist.
