How would you approach a parent or caregiver about the need for a referral for developmental screening of their child? What do you need to consider before talking to a parent or caregiver?

You would want to be sincere in how you put your words and not come off too strong, the parents wouldn't like that every much. You would want to state the red flags and say you think they should get developmental screening, for the child's benefit. Make sure the parent or caregiver knows who serious it could be if it doesn't happen.

I agree. Be caring and compassionate with your words and let them know that a screening is just that. It will let the family know if this possible delay could disappear given time or if it is good reason for early intervention to help the child in the long run.
