ASQ and MCHAT Developmental Screening

A few weeks before your appointment for ages 4 mo, 9 mo, 12 mo, 24 and 36 mo checkups, you should receive an email or phone call regarding the ASQ screening. At the 18 month well visit, a similar form, the MCHAT—a specific screener for Autism—will be given to you at your appointment.

The incubation period is generally 1 to 2 days after exposure. Meaning once exposed, you would develop symptoms within 1 to 2 days. Young children may be contagious 24 hours before symptoms begin and for as long as 10 days after. What are the main symptoms? The most common are headache, fever, sore throat, cough, chills and body aches. Patients this year have reported headache as their first symptom.
