The SWYC includes two questions asking parents if they have any concerns about their child's learning, development, or behavior. Parental concerns can be a good predictor of emotional/behavioral and developmental disorders. If a parent endorses being "somewhat" or "very much" concerned about their child on either question, pediatricians should use this as an opportunity for additional conversation. These questions are based on APA recommendations.
The Parent's Concerns were chosen from a previously validated measure. Click here to download this reference.
