HELP ® 0-3 Assessment for Early Head Start

New! Watch a video overview of KinderCharts for HELP® 0-3 Assessment!

VORT Corporation, publisher of HELP®, has teamed up with KinderCharts to provide a comprehensive Early Head Start HELP 0-3 reporting system. The KinderCharts-HELP reporting system supports Federal progress reporting requirements across Head Start's five essential domains and enhances communication among parents, staff and community stakeholders for developing and monitoring school readiness goals.

HELP® 0-3 is one of the most popular and widely used curriculum-based assessments used in early intervention programs for infants and toddlers and their families. The HELP 0-3 Strands assessment booklet links directly to Inside HELP, the Administration and Reference Manual for using HELP as an assessment, and to HELP at Home, a family focused functional curriculum for staff and parents to support each child's progress. HELP's 0-3 curriculum based assessment process uses a family-centered, relationship-based approach.

The conceptual structure of the HELP Strands, allows you to assess child strengths and needs within and between broad Head Start domains which can then be easily translated into meaningful school readiness goals for your program.

  2. A comprehensive set of reports available to select from including individual child assessment reports, aggregated child progress reports and an array of management reports to meet individual program needs. All aggregated performance and progress reports come with a complete set of graphs and charts for each domain.

As an added benefit, a comprehensive set of report filters are available to permit comparative analysis of groups of children based on demographics such as gender, age, ethnicity, number of years in the program, homelessness, child delays, parent intellectual delays, and dual language home environment.
