This case example shows use of PEDS, PEDS:DM Screening Level, and the M-CHAT, all used within a primary health care setting. Due to problematic results, this child was referred to her local early intervention program where the PEDS:DM Assessment Level was administered twice, six months apart. You will see some of the PEDS:DM items (for both Screening and Assessment Level), how the Assessment Level is scored, and how the Assessment Level booklets are reused over time with the same child to track progress. Use of PEDS along with the PEDS:DM is called “the Best Approach” because it enables you to know exactly what parents’ concerns are, as well as how to rule those concerns in or out.
