It’s recommended that all young children be regularly screened for developmental delays, but new research finds that’s not happening with fewer than 1 in 5 kids in some areas being evaluated.
Nationally, less than a third of those ages 9 to 35 months received developmental screening, according to findings published online this week in the journal JAMA Pediatrics.
