Conners Early Childhood is an assessment that addresses child behaviour for ages 2 years to 6 years. The Conners EC is the result of five years of intensive product research and development. Child psychologists, clinicians, pediatricians and child psychiatrists can rely on the Conners EC to help them identify when early intervention is required. Ideal to monitor early childhood development in a preschool setting.
The Conners EC is an innovative psychological instrument designed to assess the concerns of parents and teachers/childcare providers of preschool children.
This instrument aids in the early identification of behavioural, social and emotional problems. The Conners EC also assists in measuring whether or not the child is appropriately meeting major developmental milestones (Adaptive Skills, Communication, Motor Skills, Play and Pre-Academic/Cognitive).
This tool provides information that may be useful to consider when determining whether or not a child is eligible for early intervention or special education.

The Conners EC provides you with contemporary normative data that reflects a diverse population demographic. The large normative sample is representative of the general U.S. population in terms of ethnicity/race, gender and age (U.S. Bureau of the Census, 2000).
The normative sample is also diverse in terms of socio-economic status and geographic region. The data collected during the normative study allowed for a thorough evaluation of the psychometric properties of all versions of the assessment tools.
The normative data included 800 parent and 800 teacher / childcare provider raters. Separate norms are provided for males and females at 6-month intervals. Combined gender norms are also available.
