The doctors at Forest Lane Pediatrics screen children aged 2 months to 36 months for healthy development. Many children seem to be developing normally, but delays in healthy development can be undetected by parents. Our pediatricians will evaluate your children so that they can reach their full potential!
Ages & Stages – Developmental Screening Tool
From the moment our children are born, it is the desire of parents to provide the best for them, and make sure that they have an opportunity to pursue their wildest dreams. As pediatricians, we have the privilege of participating with families in the pursuit of that goal.The physicians of Forest Lane Pediatrics are committed to ensuring the health and development of our patients.
As part of this commitment, we administer the Ages and Stages developmental screen at all well visits for children ages 2 months through 3years. Through the use of the Ages & Stages Questionnaire® (ASQ), we are able to monitor a child’s development in Communication, Gross Motor, Fine Motor, Problem Solving,and Personal Social skills. Through close monitoring of these skills, we can reassure parents that their children are developing appropriately, and give them the head start they deserve.
At each well child visit, the Ages and Stages Questionnaire appropriate for that visit will be made available. You will also be given the appropriate ASQ questionnaire for your next well child visit. In order to minimize the time spent waiting to see the doctor, please bring the completed ASQ with you to the visit. You can also complete the questionnaires on-line using our Patient Portal.
We have a new system called CHADIS that helps us provide your family with the best care possible. “CHADIS” stands for “Child Health And Development Interactive System.” CHADIS helps you communicate securely with your doctor over the Internet before your office visit. Please visit our CHADIS page.
