Illinois Association for Infant Mental Health
The Illinois Association for Infant Mental Health believes that from the beginning, every child should have a family and community environment in which he or she can thrive physically, mentally and emotionally
The Illinois Association for Infant Mental Health has a rich history and extraordinary diversity in the type of professional who call themselves an infant mental health professional. Members of ILAIMH come from a variety of disciplines including education, social work, psychology, medicine, academia, public policy, child development, physical and occupational therapy, and other allied disciplines. We are all drawn together by a common interest in the social-emotional development of infants and their families
ILAIMH is a 501C3 non-profit and is an affiliate of the World Association for Infant Mental Health.

The DC: 0-3 R Crosswalk Now Available
The DC: 0-3 R allows practitioners working with infants and toddlers and their families to arrive at age- appropriate diagnoses for purposes of treatment recommendations and practice. DC: 0-3 R diagnoses, however, are not billable for insurance companies and Medicaid. The Illinois DC: 0-3 R Crosswalk Manual aligns appropriate DC: 0-3 R diagnosis with the billable DSM IV or ICD 9 code. Practitioners with training and experience in diagnosing infants and toddlers and their families are ideally suited to using the DC: 0-3 R and the Crosswalk. For more information or questions about the Manual, contact us at
Guide to Screening and Assessment Measures
The Research Committee has completed the Guide to Screening and Assessment Measures. This guide provides a current list of screening and assessment measures for social and emotional development. Detailed information about each measure is provided in an easy-to-read table format, including its purpose, psychometric properties, administration, training requirements, and distributor and ordering information. It should be extremely helpful for early childhood professionals from a diverse array of professional backgrounds looking for a way to assess and track the progress of the children with whom they work.
