Developmental and behavioral health screenings are a critical part of preventative care. They provide a comprehensive physical and mental assessment, helping identify any potential issues or risk factors.
Screenings can involve tests, interviews, questionnaires, and observations. They provide a broad range of information that can help to detect any medical conditions or developmental delays early on.
In infants and toddlers, screenings may focus on physical growth and development, language, and motor skills. Tests may look at academic performance, behavior, physical development, and social interactions in school-age children. For adults, screenings typically focus on mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.
