    I think the key to approach developmental screening with parents is to make it as something normal to go over through the year. Since parents can be sensitive when receiving red flags about their child development, it is vital to be well prepared. Teachers should be knowledgeable about children development stages and keep organized records of the classroom screening documentation of each child, so they can support their statements and provide data if necessary. It is also important that you confide this information with the director or an approved co-worker who is knowledgeable is this subject as well, so they can offer feedback and help you get ready for your teacher-parent meeting. Finally, be ready to offer local referrals that can help the kid and parents find solutions.
