Overview

Implementing developmental screening into primary/pediatric care can significantly improve the early identification of potential developmental or social emotional delay for many children. In addition, it allows for the prompt referral of children and families to appropriate community resources.

HealthyPeople 2020 identifies developmental disabilities as one of the six most important health concerns in the United States. Mental, emotional and behavioral health disorders cost the U.S. $247 billion in 2007.

Children from lower socio economic status (SES) are most at risk for poor developmental outcomes. Early identification and intervention can significantly impact the holistic health and academic success of these individuals, which in turn reduces costly interventions later in life.

Objectives

  • Provide a learning opportunity for Health Center staff focusing on integrating developmental screening in the delivery of primary care services. 
  • Promote the healthyPeople 2020 goal for Maternal and Infant Child Health (MICH)-29: Increase the proportion of young children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental delays such as speech, learning who are screened, evaluated, and enrolled in early intervention services in a timely manner.  

Target Audience 

  • Nurse providers, medical assistants, social workers, quality improvement managers, clinical services staff
  • Other care team representatives and Health Center staff involved in the health care delivery of pediatric population

Registration is limited to the first 25 people (no more than three per health center)

There is no cost, but registration is limited, so register today. Individual Health Centers who register by the early bird registration deadline of August 31, 2014, will receive the latest "Ages to Stages (ASQ)" toolkit (valued at approximately $275). Because there are a limited number of tookkits, these will be on a first come, first serve basis.
