The Early Learning Accomplishment Profile (E-LAP™) provides a systematic method for observing the skill development of any child functioning in the birth to 36 month age range, including children with disabilities. The E-LAP™ Kit contains most materials necessary for assessing 20 children. Includes scoring sheets for summarizing results 3 times in one year.
- A criterion-referenced assessment instrument
- Provides a complete picture of a child's acquired and emerging skills in 6 domains of development: gross motor, fine motor, cognition, language, self-help, and social-emotional
- Effective for communicating and collaborating with parents about their child's progress

The Participant will:
- Describe the role of the E-LAP within a comprehensive assessment program.
- Explore the contents of an E-LAP kit
- Practice the procedures for calculating chronological age and identifying a starting point for each of the six domains that the instrument measures.
- Practice establishing a basal and a ceiling for each domain of the instrument.
- Practice calculating the approximate developmental age for each of the domains.
- Complete the E-LAP Profile by using results.
- Describe how to use the results to inform planning for children.
- [Optional] Administer at least one domain to another participant, correctly calculating chronological age, locating a starting point, establishing a basal and a ceiling, calculating the approximate developmental age for each domain, and completing the E-LAP Profile based upon information presented during the session.
