Rating Developmental Screening Instruments


Realizing that early identification of developmental delay in children requires reliable screening methods, child health care providers and policymakers are seeking help in selecting appropriate instruments. For this project, the investigators, in collaboration with leading authorities in developmental-behavioral pediatrics, will review existing screening tools for children age 3 and younger and develop recommendations for pediatric practices. Their work will include a comprehensive review of journal articles on developmental screening, discussions with key experts in the field to uncover unpublished data, and evaluation of each identified instrument's strengths and weaknesses. This research should promote the adoption of standardized approaches to providing developmental services in primary care.
