When to Raise Our White Flag—A Discussion of Scope of Practice in a Resource Scarce World
CASE: Thomas is a 13-year-old boy with autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), generalized anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, and major depressive disorder who presented for a follow-up to his developmental and behavioral pediatrician (DBP). His mother describes an increase in symptoms of anxiety and depression for the last 6 weeks, accompanied by suicidal ideation and thoughts of self-mutilation. Before this increase in symptoms, he had been doing well for the last several months with the exception of increasing weight gain, and Abilify was decreased from 5 mg to 2.5 mg at...

Early Gross Motor Development Among Brazilian Children with Microcephaly Born Right After Zika Virus Infection Outbreak
ABSTRACT: Objective: To assess the gross motor development of children with presumed congenital Zika virus (ZIKV) infection over the first 2 years of their lives. Methods: Seventy-seven children were assessed at the median ages of 11, 18, and 24 months, using the evaluative instrument Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM-66). At the third assessment, the children with diagnoses of cerebral palsy (CP) were classified by severity through the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) and stratified by topography indicating the predominantly affected limbs. With these instruments in combination and using the moto...

Profiles and Predictors of Infant Sleep Problems Across the First Year
ABSTRACT: Objective: To identify profiles and predictors of maternal-reported infant sleep problems across the first postnatal year. Methods: Survey data examining maternal mental and physical health, intimate partner violence (IPV), and infant sleep problems and night waking were gathered from a cohort of 1,460 nulliparous women at 15 weeks' gestation and when their infants were 3, 6, 9, and 12 months old. Results: Latent class analysis revealed 5 profiles of infant sleep problems, including those who had few problems (24.7%), persistent moderate problems (27.3%), increased problems at 6 months (10.8%), increase...

Experience with the Rapid Interactive Test for Autism in Toddlers in an Autism Spectrum Disorder Diagnostic Clinic
ABSTRACT: Objective: To examine the psychometric properties of the Rapid Interactive Screening Test for Autism in Toddlers (RITA-T) in an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) clinic for children aged 18 to 36 months. Methods: The RITA-T (level 2 screening instrument) was integrated into an ASD screening and diagnostic process for evaluating children aged 18 to 36 months who were referred to a pediatric tertiary care center. Scoring of the RITA-T to differentiate ASD from non-ASD developmental concerns was evaluated.

Identification and Management of Adolescent Depression in a Large Pediatric Care Network
Conclusion: Routine adolescent depression screening is feasible across diverse primary care sites. Most patients with elevated scores were not already receiving behavioral health services, suggesting screening identified previously undetected concerns. In turn, many adolescents with elevated scores initiated treatment after screening, which indicates providing screen results at the point of care may facilitate pediatrician actions. Still, gaps in follow-up care demonstrate the need for greater investment in primary care–based behavioral health services to support high-quality treatment and ultimately decrease the b...

Screening Instruments for Developmental and Behavioral Concerns in Pediatric Hispanic Populations in the United States: A Systematic Literature Review
Conclusions: Language and cultural considerations are critical to the administration of valid and reliable screening in pediatric health care settings. Available developmental and behavioral Spanish-language-screening instruments function differently because of both language and culture, suggesting the tools are not as psychometrically valid when administered to Spanish-speaking families. Validation of translated screening instruments is essential to eliminate the possibility of detection bias or misidentification of developmental risk, improving early access to clinical services for Hispanic and Spanish-speaking familie...

Conclusion: This study suggests little inequality between NHW and NW children in wait time to care, reasons for referral, workup, or final diagnosis for initial DBP evaluation at these 12 academic DBP centers when socioeconomic factors are considered. Nevertheless, because differences in these related factors may be mechanisms through which racial/ethnic disparities can arise, it will be important to consider them in planning models and care protocols for underserved communities.

Maternal Anxiety, Parenting Stress, and Preschoolers' Behavior Problems: The Role of Child Self-Regulation
Conclusion: Parenting stress is an additional pathway connecting maternal trait anxiety and children's externalizing and internalizing behavior problems. The risk for child externalizing problems conveyed by elevated maternal trait anxiety and parenting stress may be buffered by better self-regulation in 4-year-olds. These results suggest that interventions that include decreasing parenting stress and enhancing child self-regulation may be important to limiting the transgenerational impact of maternal trait anxiety.

Adolescent-Reported Sleep/Wake Patterns in the Relationships Between Inhibitory Control and Internalizing and Externalizing Problems
Conclusion: The results suggest that sleep/wake patterns may be a mechanism through which deficits in inhibitory control increase youth risk for internalizing and externalizing problems. Because sleep/wake patterns are frequently modified through adoption of health behaviors conducive to good sleep, assessing for problematic patterns in adolescents who present with internalizing and externalizing problems may offer providers a relatively modifiable target to reduce the emotional and behavioral problems of youth with poorer inhibitory control abilities.

Collaborating with Families and Law Enforcement Agencies to Improve Outcomes for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder
ABSTRACT: Increased visibility of adverse encounters between individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and law enforcement (LE) has stimulated a dialog among providers. There are a variety of contributing factors to the increase, including the recognized lack of training of LE professionals on the needs of individuals with ASD and the paucity of awareness of resources by the families of these individuals. The aim of this article is to provide insight into developmental-behavioral pediatric professionals, to enhance safety and reduce adverse outcomes for individuals with ASD in schools and the community.

Conclusion: Youth diagnosed with ADHD seem to be at the highest risk for ACEs. Those with comorbid ASD/ADHD report the lowest levels of family resilience when controlling for exposure to ACEs. Families of youth with ASD had lower levels of family resilience than those of neurotypical youth when controlling for exposure to ACEs, whereas families of youth with solely ADHD displayed similar levels of family resilience in comparison to neurotypical youth and their families. Results have implications for prevention and intervention with ASD and/or ADHD youth and their families. (Source: Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics)
