Although there seems to be general agreement that developmental and behavioral screening in primary care practice is desirable, cost and time constraints are significant obstacles to the widespread adoption of this practice. Carey1 states that screening involves applying a quick and simple but reasonably accurate test to an asymptomatic population to find those individuals who are likely to have the problem in question. He recommends making brief observations and asking a few questions at each well-child visit. He highlights the important distinction between a brief office screen and an assessment that should be done if the brief office screen identifies an area of concern.
