Do you know of pediatric practices or pediatric residency programs in your community that are conducting developmental screening using a specific instrument? Consider contacting these practices or residency programs about their experiences and recommendations.
Does your state's early and periodic screening, diagnosis and treatment (EPSDT) program use a developmental screening instrument? Consider contacting relevant state-level professionals about their experiences and recommendations in developmental screening.
Does your state's AAP chapter offer technical assistance for developmental screening? Consider obtaining technical assistance from your state's AAP chapter.
