ABSTRACT
Primary care providers usually monitor the child development by clinical evaluations, but added to this, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that standardized tests should be applied at different age stages, for a bet er evaluation of the neuropsychical development. Objective: Searching how the ASQ screening tests can help with improving the identification degree of the development disorders, without increasing the child well-visit duration. Material and method: A trans-sequential study, performed between January 2007 and January 2010, on a homogeneous lot of 114 children followed up since birth, in a longitudinal manner, with customary evaluations at di? erent stages of age and perform, at the age of 15 months, the ASQ screening tests. Results and discussion: Comparing with the customary evaluation which identified 10 children having development delays (8,77%), the application of the parent questionnaires raised the percentage of developmental delays to 16%, especially between non-cooperating ones. The usage of parent addressed questionnaires improved the communication between doctor and patient, raised the degree of parental involvement in their child's development stimulation, especially for the malfunctions regarding verbal and cognitive behavior. Conclusions: 1. The degree of neuropsychical development of a child is mainly correlated with the time parents dedicate to educate him, and less with the ? nancial status of the family. 2. Performing the ASQ standardized screening test raises the identi? cation degree of developmental delays in children. 3. Improving communication with parents leads to a bet er involvement in monitoring and stimulating their children's development.
