In-house Lab Tests–document tests (results or pending) None Pediatric/Adolescent Assessment Tools (Ages & Stages, etc) with results and rationale For adolescents(HEADSSS Assessment) The most commonly used developmental screening test in pediatric care is the Denver (II) Developmental Screening tool (Çelikkiran, Bozkurt, & Coşkun, 2015). This tool measures the child’s development by using 125 items that are divided into gross motor, fine motor-adaptive, personal-social, and language skills (Celikkiran et al., 2015). Each item is scored as a pass fail, refusal, or no opportunity (Celikkiran et al., 2015). After grading J.P. on this screening tool, he appears to have no developmental deficits, as he either performed all items or his mother reported that he performed the items at home appropriate to his age. Furthermore, the Bayley Scales of Infant Developmental III or Bayley-III is also one of the most widespread developmental screening tools used in infants from 0 months to 42 months of age (Yue et al., 2019). The primary purpose of this screening tool is to identify children with developmental delays and provide information for intervention planning (Yue et al., 2019). The tool does not take up a lot of the providers time (15-20 minutes) and assesses 4 developmental areas including: (1) basic neurologic functions (posture and muscle tone), (2) expressive functions (oral/verbal functions and gross motor skills), (3) cognitive functions (problem solving and object permanence), and (4) receptive functions (auditory, verbal, and visual) (Yue et al., 2019). J.P.’s score was a 19, which indicates that he is at low risk for developmental delay (Yue et al., 2019).
