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
inventories (such as the Denver II and the Minnesota Child Development
Parents' Evaluations of Development
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, teens,
and young adults or in a child any age who has a mild condition. But when
used routinely, they can help identify subtle developmental delays that may
otherwise be missed.
