 How New Hampshire is implementing Bright Futures

Adaptation: The state of New Hampshire's division of Maternal & Child Health (MCH) has changed its clinical pediatric and adolescent site visit tool with the release of the revised Bright Futures Guidelines. These changes occurred with respect to developmental screening and surveillance, including universal autism screening at the 18- to 24-month visits.

MCH staff is working with the Title V-funded agencies to assess the impact of the recommendations, such as any subsequent training needed.​
