Dr. Chris Sheldrick’s research focuses on the science and practice of screening and clinical decision making, spanning from instrument development to implementation and evaluation of screening protocols. Collaborating with Dr. Ellen Perrin, Dr. Sheldrick helped to create the Survey of Wellbeing of Young Children (www.theSWYC.org), a freely-available comprehensive screening instrument for young children. Together, they are now completing a study comparing the accuracy of several developmental and behavioral screening instruments that are prominently used in pediatrics. In addition, Dr. Sheldrick has received training in systems science and decision analysis through a KM1 fellowship. Dr. Sheldrick's current research applies these methods with the goal of helping clinicians improve identify and help children with developmental and behavioral problems in a range of community settings.
