Validating a Public-Domain Developmental Screening and Surveillance Instrument for Young Children, Phase 2


There is much variability in the quality of developmental monitoring at well-child care visits, partly because an efficient, standardized process has not been developed. In the first phase of this project, a research team created a template for the new Survey of Well-being for Young Children, a structured instrument that pediatricians can use to identify and monitor emerging developmental and behavioral problems, as well as family risk factors for poor outcomes in children. In the next phase, the team will complete the refinement, initial testing, and validation of the new instrument, which will be available in the public domain.
