Purpose

Developmental delay and disability are common disorders found in early childhood, yet many children go undiagnosed until school age. Children with developmental delays that are not identified early miss out on the opportunity for early intervention therapies that could significantly improve their functioning across their life course. Education around screening recommendations and implementation strategies for busy primary care practices is critical for best patient care.

 

Conference Objectives

Upon completion of this conference, the participant will be able to:

  • List screening recommendations for development delay, autism and post partum depression
  • Demonstrate enhanced skills in the recognition of developmental delay, autism and postpartum depression
  • Identify methods of incorporating technology and screening in the primary care office
  • Recognize the benefit of Early Intervention and how to connect families to resources
  • Develop an increased understanding of family perspective
  • Demonstrate how to use the Ages and Stages Questionnaire as one method of standardized developmental screening in the primary care setting
