Dr. Limbos will be presenting the final results of her survey of primary care physicians' practices in screening for developmental disabilities and autism. The findings are to be presented in an oral presentation at the 8th Annual International Conference on Psychology in Athens, Greece from May 24-26, 2014. The study, entitled: Screening for Developmental Disabilities and Autism in Canada - A Survey of Primary Care Providers, included a random survey of 1000 primary care providers in Ontario and British Columbia Canada. Of these, 262 returned completed surveys. The findings indicated that the majority of family physicians do not use standardized developmental screening tests, and certain negative attitudes and beliefs as well as barriers can be attributed to this lack of screening. Further dissemination of guidelines and recommendations for use of screening tests is needed to increase the accuracy of screening for DD. To review the submitted abstract, please click here.
