The following Bright Futures Tool and Resource Kit materials are available for download for review and reference purposes only. For any other use, to make multiple copies of specific items, or to incorporate forms into an Electronic Medical Record System, please contact institutions@aap.org.

Tools and Resources for Middle Childhood visits are grouped into the following 3 categories:

1. Middle Childhood Core Tools grouped by visit in English and Spanish

  • Previsit Questionnaires: Help determine what the family or adolescent would like to discuss that day during the visit in conjunction with the Bright Futures well-child visit priorities, assist in initiating recommended medical screening for integrating risk assessment questions, and aid in obtaining development surveillance information.
  • Visit Documentation Forms: Provide a convenient resource to document activities during a typical health supervision visit, simplify proper coding, and help secure appropriate payment for each visit's activities.
  • Parent/Patient Education Handouts: Summarize Bright Futures anticipatory guidance and are written for readers with limited literacy skills.

    NOTE: To access the Parent/Patient Education Handouts separate from the other core visit tools, go to the Resources for Families Web page.
