Screening Time: Screening Tool Finder

Date of Review: June, 2020

This repository compiled by the American Academy of Pediatrics is an excellent resource to compare pediatric screening tools. Though the focus of this collection is healthy child development, many tools cover a wide variety of social determinants of health as they relate to healthy children and families (e.g. parental depression, social-emotional development, food insecurity, housing, incarceration). For each tool, the AAP lists the target population, topics covered, number of items, estimated completion time, validation notes, languages, and costs. Educators could use this resource to highlight differences among screening tools, and identify available options for specific contexts.—Katy Wright, PhD, NCEAS
