Survey of Pathways to Diagnosis and Services 2011

The 2011 Survey of Pathways to Diagnosis and Services (“Pathways”) is a follow-up to the 2009/10 National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs (NS-CSHCN).  Pathways is a nationally representative survey about children (age 6-17 years) who were identified by the 2009/10 NS-CSHCN as ever diagnosed with developmental delay, autism spectrum disorder, or intellectual disability.  There are two parts to Pathways—a telephone interview (n = 4,032) and a self-administered mail-in questionnaire (n = 2,988), which are both included in the public use file: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/slaits/spds.htm.

The telephone interview asks parents or guardians about the emergence of symptoms, the context of the original diagnoses, the providers who made the diagnoses, the child’s current diagnostic status, the types of clinical treatments/interventions and educational services used to address developmental problems, and other parental concerns or perspectives. 

The self-administered questionnaire asks parents or guardians about their child’s behavior, strengths, and difficulties.
