Assessments

The Ounce Scale (www.ounceonline.com) is an observational tool for our infants, toddlers and two year olds, which allows us to get to know your younger child better by observing their everyday activities. We record notes on your child’s Developmental Profile to keep track of behaviors and accomplishments throughout the school year. The Ounce Scale is not a test, but rather an observation tool to track your child‘s development. It is a way to observe children as they play and take part in daily activities, such as eating breakfast, playing, participating in resource centers and interacting with children and adults. The Ounce Scale focuses on what children can do, not what they can’t do.
