States are currently developing child-find and screening systems for implementation of Public Law 99-457. The use of parent-completed developmental questionnaires is a promising strategy for these systems. The advantages of involving parents in the developmental assessment of their infants and children are reviewed here, and guidelines for eliciting valid and reliable information from parents are outlined. Current tools are reviewed, and examples of their implementation in child-find and screening programs are described.
