Autism & Developmental Screening Tools

While surveillance is ongoing developmental monitoring at well-child checks - noting whether a child is reaching his milestones and asking parents if they have concerns - screening uses a validated tool and is performed at specific intervals. Using a reliable screening tool at recommended intervals can help identify mild delays that otherwise may be easily overlooked during routine surveillance.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that all children receive autism-specific screening at 18 and 24 months of age, in addition to broad developmental screening at 9, 18, and 24 months. 

That is where CHADIS comes in. CHADIS has a vast array of evidence-based autism and development screeners and diagnostic tools so you can offer high-level patient care, identify concerns earlier than surveillance, and also can earn additional income using billable CPT codes.

 

If a positive score does suggest the need for referral, CHADIS has a built-in referral module that effortlessly connects patients to appropriate providers and the ability to share information between providers approved with an online patient consent form.

Additionally, for the parent or caregiver, CHADIS provides suggestions for educational activities based on the child’s profile of developmental attainments (e.g. based on Ages and Stages milestones).
