Project Overview

Project SPEAK is a new a pilot project from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), designed to better understand how to improve screening for prenatal alcohol exposure in the clinical setting.

The AAP seeks pediatric primary care practices interested in reviewing and assessing newly developed materials and resources for screening for prenatal alcohol exposure. The pilot will occur across four 4-8 week sessions, each focused on a different area important to screening for prenatal alcohol exposure. Pediatricians and pediatric practice teams can choose to participate in one or more sessions. Each session will involve practice-based pre-work followed by an interactive webinar where participants will come together to share their experiences and feedback.

Throughout the project, participants will have the opportunity to work directly with a national Expert Group, receive tools and resources, and consider ways in which their practice can enhance their own efforts around screening for prenatal alcohol exposure.
