TEIXEIRA, Maria Cristina Triguero Veloz et al. Developmental delays among children from day care center of socially disadvantaged families. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.3, pp. 1042-1062. ISSN 1808-4281.

Periodic early assessments of child development are important to elaborate prevention programs. The goal of this study was to identify global developmental delays in 100 children (aged 16-24 months, mean age 21.84 months, SD±1.94) who attended day care centers in a town in the São Paulo State. The used instrument was the Denver Developmental Screening Test II (Denver II). In the current sample, greatest deficits were observed in the speech/language domain, followed by the social-emotional development domain. The study results indicate the need of including familial/educational factors into child development's assessments, which are commonly associated with developmental delays.
