Screening

All children in the communities we work in are screened for delayed development at Primary Health Centres, Village Sub-Centres, Anganwadi Centres (Integrated Child Development Scheme), Pre-Schools or directly in their homes.

Our community rehabilitation workers work alongside village health nurses and Anganwadi workers (preschool teachers) to conduct the screening using the Trivandrum Development Screening Chart and Washington Group / UNICEF Child Functioning Module

All children screened positive are flagged in the EI app for further follow-up by the implementation teams.

Outcomes

  • A study was conducted in collaboration with McGill University of Canada and found 100% concordance between screening conducted by community workers and rehabilitation specialists and 2.1% prevalence rate of development delays were detected.
