The Survey of Well-being of Young Children
(SWYC) is a freely-available, comprehensive screening instrument for children under 5 years of age. The SWYC was written to be simple to answer, short, and easy to read. The entire instrument requires 15 minutes or less to complete and is straightforward to score and interpret.

The SWYC is approved by MassHealth for compliance with the Children's Behavioral Health Initiative screening guidelines.
