This toolkit aims to equip primary care providers with tools and resources to support the provision of Health Checks for patients with developmental disabilities. To reach this end we have compiled both clinical tools - which may be useful at the point of care, in addition to implementation resources for those sites interested in formalizing a Health Check program. The latter includes strategies and resources to raise awareness in your site, mechanisms to identify patients with developmental disabilities, and suggestions on how to invite them in for a Health Check.
