    Before approaching the parent I would make sure to have many good observations documented so that I am able to communicate it to the parents. I also would also run through what I would be talking with the parents about. Have the observations clearly documented will allow me to cross reference with the cdc checklists in order to show the parents what area the child is possibly delayed by being as objective as possible. I would make sure to have the parents come in for a conference or make sure no other people are around to speak about the childs confidential info.
