Developmental Screenings

The Department of Human Services (DHS) requires all Medicaid providers to screen for developmental delays and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs). These requirements have also been integrated into Pennsylvania's Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) program. 

Our providers must document all surveillance, screening and referral activities, and include a copy of the validated developmental or autism screening tool used to conduct the screening.  You may use any validated screening tool.
