    Make sure to define what you believe the child may have, and be ready to explain what observations have led you to that belief. Be ready for parents to be upset or defensive, and reassure them that their child is healthy and that you’re not a doctor, but believe they should be screened. Be ready with a script and have a coworker to back you up, and have a list of resources available.
