Developmental Tools Used During Routine Well-Child Visits

The following questionnaires are examples of some of the developmental tools a health professional can use to determine whether a child has any developmental delays:

  • Ages and Stages Questionnaire
  • BRIGANCE Screens
  • Child Development Inventories (such as the Denver II and the Minnesota Child Development Inventory)
  • Parents' Evaluations of Development Status
  • Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (M-CHAT)

Although these questionnaires are important, they may not consistently identify problems, such as autism, in older children, adolescents, and young adults or in a child any age with a mild condition. But when used routinely, they can help identify subtle developmental delays that may otherwise be missed.
