Why is it need?
The American Academy of Pediatrics ADHD guidelines recommend ADHD care and intervention include multiple screeners and assessments as part of a child’s chronic care.
The PSC will be completed every 30 days by the parent or guardian, giving pediatricians the ability to track whether the child’s ADHD symptom severity is regressing or improving over the time they are engaged with the Esteem Thrive platform (again, parents and behavioral health providers will also be able to follow PSC trend lines as part of the child’s intervention and chronic care).
Why is the Pediatric Symptoms Checklist important for the chid’s ADHD care and overall development?
As a gold standard assessment, the PSC provides complementary information, data, and insights with the other ADHD assessments included within the Esteem Thrive platform.
Quantifying changes in the child’s cognitive, emotional, and behavioral problems will enable pediatricians and behavioral health providers to participate in a whole health model to provide optimal care. Additionally, the Esteem Thrive platform will provide data, information, and insights as part of the child’s ADHD and child development journey.
What is our desired out come for this intervention?
The desired outcome is parents will be engaged in completing the assessment on a 30-day basis. Additionally, every 90 days during the child’s pediatric ADHD review visit, pediatricians will use the Esteem Thrive Pediatrician report, which includes the PSC assessment data, to better manage their patient's chronic care.
In addition, our goal is that parents and behavioral health providers will review the data and insights provided by the Esteem Thrive platform to adjust interventions as well as reviewing data within sessions to help guide and inform parents.
How will we know Pediatric Symptoms Checklist intervention is working?
The first indication is that parents are completing the PSC assessments every 30 days. The completed assessments will populate the charts below:
The Esteem Thrive platform automatically sends the parent a notification to their email or smart phone. The notification enables them to quickly complete the assessment with very little effort.
