Let's say that the medical industry receives or makes a very serious recommendation that involves the health of patients. You would expect the industry to respond to this recommendation with vigor, right? You would think that the doctors, nurses, surgeons and everyone else involved in the medical field would do everything in their power to ensure that the recommendation is fulfilled.
It appears that when it comes to kids and screening them for potential developmental disorders, recommendations don't mean much. It was recommended that doctors screen young children once a year for potential developmental disorders. In a perfect world, these screenings would happen -- but in our world, few children actually receive the screenings. Worse still, the whole matter of kids and developmental disorders seems to be dismissed.
