At selected visits, Bright Futures recommends universal screening for issues such as child development, maternal or adolescent depression, substance use, or oral health. A number of screening tools have been developed and are commonly used. The Toolkit provides a list of links to tools for use at specific Bright Futures visits as well as screening and assessment tools for use at the discretion of the health care professional.

Links provided for these commonly used tools go to the author or the owner (or both) of the specific tool to ensure accessibility to the most up-to-date version of the specific tool. Review and comply with any copyright and permissions requirements before use.

NOTE: The American Academy of Pediatrics does not approve nor endorse any specific tool for screening purposes. This table is not exhaustive, and other screening tools may be available. For best results, it is recommended that users review available instruction manuals before administering, scoring, and analyzing results of the scoring tools. Availability of a tool in multiple languages does not correlate to validation of the tool in such languages.
