AUTISM RESOURCES
Autism Screening
- The MCHAT (Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers) is screening tool that you can complete prior to your appointment. We routinely use this at 18 , 24 and 30 months. While it cannot diagnose autism, it can identify risk factors for autism.


DEVELOPMENTAL DELAY RESOURCES

Developmental Milestones
- This great website from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) lists developmental milestones for children at each age, and when to be concerned.
 

Developmental Screening- This is a much more detailed developmental screening tool called the “SWYC”. You can fill out this form at any age between 2 months and 5 years old. Your provider will be able to score and interpret the results using this site.  

Early intervention- If you are a NJ resident and your child is not meeting their developmental milestones, you may qualify for a free evaluation, without a referral.
Call 1-888-653-4463 or 1-888-NJEI-INFO to set up an appointment.
