Abstract

"Fewer than half of the nation's pediatricians conduct systematic surveillance of young children's development… time and cost are among the barriers." Missing developmental delay leads to further attenuation of the problem and can lead to additional developmental problems. Developmental delay can often be corrected or treated to reduce the impact it has on the child. The AAP suggests "developmental surveillance" at every well child visit and standardized "developmental screening" at WCC 9 months, 18 months, and 24 or 30 month.
