Improving Developmental Screening in Early Childhood
If you need MOC Part 4 performance improvement recognition in 2021, please complete the project and your attestation by November 30, 2021.
The American Academy of Pediatrics updated its recommendations for developmental screening of young children in January 2020. These guidelines include general developmental screening at age 9, 18, And 30 months This project is aimed at improving the rates of general screening using the Ages and Stages Questionnaire, 3rd Edition (ASQ-3) at ages 9, 18, and 30 months and this project will help improve and track your success in performing this screening at the proper age groups.
The goal of this project is to increase the percent of children receiving an ASQ-3 developmental screen at ages 12, 24, and 36 months to 75% within 3 to 6 months from starting the project. This will be called the ASQ-3 compliance percentage, which is the percentage of children seen with one completed ASQ by age 12 months, 2 completed ASQs by age 24 months, and 3 completed ASQs by age 36 months.
This online module has 3 stages requiring you to complete 2 Plan Do Study Act (PDSA) cycles, and you need to complete all three stages in order to claim credit. It will take approximately 3 months to fully complete this program.
Stage A: Participants will identify their current ASQ-3 compliance percentage and they will set their goals for improvement.
Stage B: Participants will watch a presentation on developmental screening, coding for developmental screening, and documentation of ASQ-3. They will complete their first PDSA cycle and report their gap score after the first cycle.
Stage C: Participants will record their final gap score and reflect on the project.
This course is intended for AAH providers in pediatrics and family medicine.
At the end of this session, learners should be able to:
- Understand the difference between developmental surveillance and developmental screening
- Know the appropriate ages for doing developmental screening and specific ASD screening
- Understand the recommended additional workup and referrals for children found to have abnormal screening
- Understand the available evaluation, treatment, and family support services in Wisconsin and Illinois for children found to have developmental problems
