KIDS (2015) is made up of eleven domains. The focus of each domain is on the acquisition of knowledge, skills, or behaviors that
reflect each domain’s developmental constructs. Because there are multiple measures for each domain, a completed KIDS (2015)
instrument provides enough information to support assessment along a developmental continuum. A child’s learning and development across domains provides the child’s overall learning and developmental profile.
• The Social and Emotional Development (SED) domain assesses children’s developing abilities to understand and interact
with others and to form positive relationships with nurturing adults and their peers. The knowledge or skill areas in this domain
include identity of self in relation to others, social and emotional understanding, relationships and social interactions with
familiar adults, relationships and social interactions with peers, and symbolic and sociodramatic play.
Here are checklists to use in the classroom with Developmental Domain, Measure, Definition, Developmental Level and Descriptor.
