This 60-minute session, based on the AAP policy statement on developmental screening (2006) is delivered onsite at your clinic and is designed to promote the early identification of and timely referral for children with delays. Clinicians learn about and receive copies of a validated developmental screening tool, Ages and Stages Questionnaire-3, and a validated autism-specific screening instrument, Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers-Revised with Follow-Up. In addition, community partners serving children with delays and their families will share information about their programs.

Pediatric Mental Health Screening Tools*

Based upon the AAP’s Mental Health Toolkit (2010) and the AAP policy statement on behavioral health integration into pediatric primary care (2009), this educational opportunity is designed to support primary care clinicians in behavioral health provision. This one-hour module reviews AAP recommendations on pediatric mental health screening and some of the supporting literature. Clinicians learn about two mental health screening tools and are provided with copies of each: Ages and Stages Questionnaire: Social Emotional-Second Edition, and Pediatric Symptom Checklist-17. A clinic-specific list of resources is shared.
