“Early identification is the first step in early intervention.”
"It is so important for parents to monitor their child’s development. As a pediatrician, it gives me more information to assist in my evaluation when parents have completed the ndds checklist."
- Dr. Linsey Mutch BScH, MD, FRCP(C) Pediatrics
"We would recommend that every agency dealing with children should have access to the ndds. It has been a useful tool for us in getting families to recognize that their child may require a little assistance/intervention to achieve certain developmental goals. We like that parents can use the checklist to monitor their child and many use them at every age level."
- Carole Ann Bethune & Karen Adams, Nipissing Ontario Early Years Centre
"The ndds is a great tool to introduce parents (particularly new parents) to child development. Our hope is that they will find it easy to use as well as helpful - especially the activity sheets - in their new role as parents and will continue to use the ndds at least up until their child starts school."
- Linda McLay, Coordinator, CAPC & Mothercare
