New! Online Screening Tool Finder!
Unsure of which screening tool to use? Access our Screening Tool Finder on the screeningtime.org website.
Please note: The AAP does not approve nor endorse any specific tool for screening purposes. The Screening Tool Finder is not exhaustive, and other screening tools may be available. The STAR Center resources focus on early childhood screening. Therefore, the target population for the tools is children aged 0 to 5 years. For best results, it is recommended that users review available instruction manuals prior to administering, scoring, and analyzing results of the scoring tools. The amount of time that it takes to complete screening and scoring will vary. Availability of a tool in multiple languages does not correlate to validation of the tool in such languages. For some tools, especially those that measure social determinants of health, extensive validation studies are not yet available.
