How Do I Use the GES?

 Gesell Early Screener (GES) Administration and Results Training:

No training is officially required to administer the GES. A manual is included in your GES kit purchase and can be followed by individuals with experience with the GDO-R or by some child development or education professionals.

However, Gesell strongly recommends that GES examiners:

    1. Complete a brief online workshop to ensure they are adequately trained in valid administration and competent in analyzing results. View upcoming workshops here.
    2. Complete a Foundations of Child Development recorded webinar. Purchase here.
    3. Adhere to assessment best practice.

Group Workshops: Live virtual training is available for school groups interested in being further supported in the art of administration and science of analysis of the GES. To inquire about or to schedule a private live virtual GES workshop, please fill out this online form indicating "GES Private Workshop" and we will contact you.
