Welcome to Well Child Lens for Pediatric Health Care Providers

Even though autism can be reliably detected by 18 months, the average age of diagnosis in the U.S. is between four and five years, which means that many children with autism are losing two or more valuable years for therapies that could improve their functioning and even change their life course. Well Child Lens features more than 500 videos of varying lengths where you can view children the same age as your patients, see side by side comparisons of typical vs. at risk behaviors, and watch parents talk about receiving a diagnosis and living with autism.

In addition, by registering, you can personalize your video search based on your needs and questions and bookmark specific videos as Favorites. You also gain access to three CME courses, developed with grants from the National Institutes of Health, as well as interactive tools created to improve the early detection of autism during the 18 and 24 month well care visits.

Subtle But Significant

The positive symptoms of autism – such as making finger movements near the eyes, staring at ceiling fans, or hand flapping – are not generally present or are very subtle in children under three, becoming more pronounced at later ages. However, toddlers with autism may express some of these symptoms very quickly, over very brief intervals, and they can be difficult to distinguish from typical toddler behaviors. Video of these subtle symptoms in toddlers with ASD can help clinicians begin to see these signs during the exam.

Continuing Medical Education Courses

Well Child Lens's three video-based CME courses offer a comprehensive overview of autism in toddlers, with focus on early detection, surveillance, screening, and therapies for autism in children three years of age and under. They were created in association with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai Key presenter Deborah Fein, Ph.D, Professor in the Departments of Psychology and Pediatrics at the University of Connecticut, is a nationally recognized expert in early detection and early intervention.

Well Visit Video Guide

While parents are the best observers of a child's behavior over time, your observations during the well visit are a crucial element of early detection. But we also know that children may not always be "themselves" during a well visit if they are shy or upset. The Well Visit Video Guide provides concrete strategies and tips for prompting typical milestone behaviors, even when you have trouble engaging a child, as well as a checklist and suggestions for how to elicit concerns from parents.

Doctors Are the First Line of Defense

Parents may be the best observer of their child's development but they depend on their child's doctor to be knowledgeable about the warning signs and missed milestones of an ASD. Without screening and surveillance by an informed pediatric healthcare provider, children can be missed at a time in their lives when therapy is MOST effective. Doctors are the first line of defense.

The Interactive Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (iM-CHAT)

In collaboration with the creators of the M-CHAT, Well Child Lens has created a video-enhanced and automated version of the M-CHAT. The iM-CHAT provides video examples of the behavior in question, which clarifies the behaviors being asked about for parents and is expected to improve accuracy of the parents' answers. In addition, the iM-CHAT's automatic follow up interview and scoring will streamline screening during the 18 and 24 month visits. Clinical validation of the iM-CHAT is pending.

"Just based on preliminary data…, we see that the iM-CHAT has been a valuable addition to our autism screening and surveillance routine. The engaging videos, that are part of the iM-CHAT, highlight typically developing children and children at risk, and our physicians have commented that the videos increase the parents' understanding of the questions. The fact that the iM-CHAT is digital, interactive and automatically scored has certainly streamlined the process."

Well Child Lens Autism – Clinical Version

Now in development, Well Child Lens Autism Clinical Version (WCLA-CV) will be a web-based EMR compatible software system for use by pediatric healthcare providers as part of the office workflow. When brought to market, WCLA-CV will be a complete healthcare IT solution for the early detection of autism and developmental delays. It will include the iM-CHAT and additional tools that follow the autism surveillance guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics – all automated to fit into a busy practice.
