Developmental and Behavioral Screening for Children

Posted: 03/02/2020

The Michigan Medicaid Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) guidelines indicate that developmental/behavioral screening/assessment is required:

  • At each scheduled EPSDT well-child visit from birth through adolescence as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) periodicity schedule; and during any other preventive health care well-child visits when there are parent/guardian and/or provider concerns.

The PCP should screen all children for developmental and behavioral concerns, including engaging in risky behavior, using a validated and standardized screening tool as indicated by the AAP periodicity schedule. The AAP periodicity schedule is located at: www.aap.org >> Professional Resources >> Clinical Support >> Bright Futures >> Recommendations for Preventive Pediatric Health Care in Practice.
