Screening allows for early diagnosis and treatment of disorders that can negatively affect a child’s mental and physical health for a lifetime. In some cases, these disorders can cause death if not diagnosed and treated early.
No federal laws regulate newborn blood spot screening programs. Each state adopts its own screening laws, determines policies and procedures related to screening, and operates its own screening programs. Therefore, the number of conditions that states screen for varies widely.
