Methodologic Guides for the Evaluation of Community Developmental Screening Programs
A screening program is an organized effort to detect, among presumably developmentally normal children in the community, disabilities that were previously undetected. Such a program also includes all the events that must occur after screening if it is to benefit a community’s children. These include diagnostic confirmation, therapeutic and preventive intervention, and follow-up.
