A program in three North Carolina counties is aimed at providing early diagnosis of developmental delays, learning disabilities and autism in children, as well as finding appropriate treatments and services for children before they start school. The Assuring Better Child Health and Development Project helps doctors streamline screenings by providing standardized parent questionnaires during children's medical checkups, looking for signs that might prompt referrals for further evaluation or early-intervention services.
