Guidance for assessing children who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) with the DRDP (2015).
News and Updates
The California Department of Education has released a compact preschool view of the DRDP (2015), the DRDP (2015) Preschool Fundamental View, for general education and special education. Beginning fall 2016, the DRDP (2015) Preschool Fundamental View must be used with preschoolers with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).
The DRDP (2015) Infant/Toddler View Assessment Manual has a revised Introduction and Appendices, but no change to the measures.
Please download the new DRDP (2015) Preschool Fundamental View Rating Record for use with preschool-age children with IEPs and the DRDP (2015) Special Education Information Page and discard the previous versions.
The California Department of Education has created a shorter preschool view of the DRDP (2015) entitled the Preschool Fundamental View. It contains the five domains required for preschool-age children with IEPs plus the English Language Development (ELD) domain. All preschool-age children with IEPs will be assessed with the Preschool Fundamental View beginning in the fall of 2016.
From this page you can download all materials needed to conduct a workshop for home visitors and others to understand and start using this process and supplements "Using the DRDP (2015) for Special Education."
This worksheet provides a format for identifying and describing the adaptations that a child will use in typical routines and activities throughout the day and that will be available for gathering information for the DRDP (2015) assessment.
