Ages And Stages Questionnaire Announcement

Hello Discover Health parents,

One of the most important parts of your child’s regularly scheduled wellness check-up is the review of his or her developmental progress. Here at Discover Health, we utilize the Ages and Stages Questionnaire for children 2 months to 5 years old being seen for their routine physical, please complete the online developmental screening at least 1 day before the visit. One of the most well-validated and widely used developmental screening tools, helps us objectively evaluate your child’s progress in the different developmental domains. Many of you have seen and filled out this questionnaire, but we have noticed that many are not taking advantage of this screening tool.

We wanted to reach out to emphasize the importance of logging on and filling out the screener at least a couple days before your visit. It takes about a day for the results to make it into the electronic chart, and having it completed beforehand will help you get the most out of your child’s check-up. You will typically receive the link to the questionnaire when you make your child’s appointment. We know that sometimes the questions are difficult to answer, or even ask about tasks you’ve never done with your child. It’s great if you can engage them in the task, but if not don’t worry, just answer the best way you can, and we will discuss during the visit. 

If you have any questions about how to access or complete the questionnaire do not hesitate to reach out to staff or your pediatrician. Thank you so much for being an active partner in the care of your child. The dedication and attention of our member families is one of the many things that makes this practice uniquely rewarding.  

In good health, 
Dr. Herbsman, Dr. Castelli, and Dr. Agbai
