Description: Scalable TRansdiagnostic Early Assessment of Mental Health (STREAM) is developing and validating non-invasive, scalable tools for assessment of child development in preschool years. The tools include parent-report questionnaires, tablet-based gamified neuropsychological tasks, eye tracking and electroencephalography (EEG). The tool will be administered by trained non-specialist workers in homes/community centre settings on 0-6 year-old children in Delhi/NCR. The key strength of these tools is that, in the long term, they will provide a low-cost, scalable way to assess child development and identify children that are at risk of not reaching their full developmental potential and refer them for timely interventions. Sangath is part of a large consortium of top Indian and international research organisations that will be working together for this project being led by University of Reading in the UK.
