    If I felt that a child under my care needed a referral for developmental screening and I

    brought it up with the child’s parents, I would start by sharing positives with them about their

    child. I would be sure that the parent trusts that I care for their child and have their best

    interest in mind, and then I would bring up my concerns.

    2. Before talking to a parent or caregiver, I need to consider the amount of observing I have

    done on the child, and I need to consider how confident I am in what I am observing.
