You discuss Matthew’s development with his parents and ask them if they have any concerns.

They state they do not at this time.

You provide ideas for engaging Matthew in creative play, as well as facilitating speech and language development, and you make another health care maintenance appointment for Matthew during which you will continue to follow his developmental progress.

Per the AAP recommendations, Matthew should have another ASD-specific screen at 24 months or earlier if the parents or physician have concerns.
