Two hundred and seven Australian paediatricians were sent a questionnaire to determine whether they undertook developmental screening and/or assessment.
Replies were received from 140 (68%) paediatricians of whom 115 (82%) stated they did developmental screening and 58 (41%) said they did developmental assessment.
The Denver Developmental Screening Test was the most widely used (74%), but several other tests were used, not all correctly.
There was greater confusion in the area of developmental assessment and appropriate tests, although 37 (26%) used the Griffiths.
The results are described in detail and some of the current concerns about developmental screening and assessment are discussed.
