 1.02  Instructions amended for family question
5/20/15  Milestones scoring calculator added     SWYC form and Milestones Scoring Calculator 5-18-15  
6/18/15     Revised Milestones scoring calculator added SWYC form and Milestones Scoring Calculator 6-18-15 The 5/18/15 version of the Milestones calculator had been incorrectly showing scores just below the threshold as falling in the average range. The 6/18/15 version fixes this error.
 10/7/15      Complete set of English forms     1.03 Earlier versions of the SWYC forms included dots filling the blank space in each line of text on the front side of the age-specific forms. These dots were meant to increase readability. However, we received feedback that the dots closest to the response bubbles were confusing to some parents, who thought that they indicated a mid-way response between one response bubble and the next (and would therefore circle a dot instead of filling in a response bubble). For that reason, we removed the place-holding dots nearest tot he response bubbles.

On the subscale-specific forms, we changed the main title from "SWYC" to the subscale name (BPSC, PPSC, etc)
10/28/15      Complete set of Spanish forms Spanish age specific forms, version 1.03     All Spanish age-specific forms were updated to include revisions suggested by the translation team at CHOP.

Milestones: The response option on previous Spanish Milestones forms have been “todavia no, un poco, mucho.” On version 1.03, they have been changed to “todavia no, algunas veces, mucho.” The instructions have also been modified for clarity.

BPSC: The response option on previous Spanish BPSC forms have been “nunca, un poco, mucho.” On version 1.03, they have been changed to “igual, un poco más, mucho más.” The instructions have also been modified for clarity.

PPSC: The response options have been modified in the same way as the BPSC, described above, and instructions have also been modified for clarity.

All forms have also been modified to include the sub-scale names in both Spanish and English (in entirety or just the English acronym). This has been added so that SWYC users can more easily match up the Spanish-language subscales to the English-language scoring guides.

On the subscale-specific forms, we changed the main title from "SWYC" to the subscale name
 12/14/15      SWYC Form and Milestones calculator SWYC Form and Milestones Calculator 12-14-15 The 6-18-15 version of this calculator differed from the 12-14-15 version in three ways:
  1. The age calculator and Milestones scoring calculator were on separate tabs. They have now been combined into one tab.
  2. The 6-18-15 calculator did not include a way to adjust for prematurity. The 12-14-15 version includes this feature.
  3. The 6-18-15 calculator was not clear about scoring thresholds for the 2 and 60 month Milestones forms. While these forms are useful for surveillance, we do not currently have scoring thresholds for those two Milestones forms.
 12/14/15                  Hand scoring guides      12-14-15  All hand scoring guides were updated on 12-14-15 to match the wording and formatting in the in-process manual.  No substantive changes to the scoring rules are included.
 2/3/16          The Milestones hand scoring guide    2-3-16  The Milestones hand-scoring guide was modified to include a new, simplified scoring table, also included in the manual. The suggested cut scores have not changed from previous editions, but the new chart is intended to be more user-friendly.
 3/1/16 All English and Spanish language SWYC forms     1.04,
3-1-16    
Questions 6 and 7 of the Family Questions were reformatted so that the response bubbles contain visible scoring numbers (as opposed to blank bubbles). This change is intended to make the scoring of this two-item depression screen easier for SWYC users.

This Family Questions formatting change is reflected on all the age-specific SWYC forms and on the stand-alone Family  Questions download. On the stand-alone BPSC, PPSC, POSI, and Milestones downloads, the version number and date have been updated to v1.04 3-1-16 for uniformity, but no actual changes have been made.
 3/22/16     Milestones scoring guide, combined scoring guides, comprehensive scoring sheet  3-22-16      The Milestones scoring guide had incorrectly had a > sign where a >= sign was needed in the "appears to meet age expectation" column. This error is corrected in the version of the Milestones hand scoring chart dated 3-22-16. The same change was also made to the comprehensive scoring sheet.
 3/30/16     SWYC Manual, Executive Summary v1.01 Small formatting changes were made in the manual and executive summary. The same change to the Milestones scoring table described above was also changed in these documents.
 5/16/16      All Spanish and English forms      v1.05     Trademark added to the SWYC name and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center added to all forms.

The dots between the response options were also deleted from the Spanish forms to match the formatting changes to the English forms made on 10/7/15
 5/23/16          All Portuguese forms      v2, 5-23-16      The Portuguese forms are a translation based off of English version 1.00. This has not changed. However, on 5/23/16, we uploaded a new version of the original translation with some changes made:
  •  The original Portuguese translation had included a few extra "test" items in the BPSC. These have been removed. The BPSC now matches English version 1.00, with 4 items in each of the three BPSC subscales. 
  • Some minor wording errors were corrected throughout the forms
  • A trademark sign next to the SWYC name and the Floating Hospital for Children and Tufts Medical Center logo were added to all forms
 5/23/16             All Burmese and Nepali forms  v2, 5-23-16 The Burmese and Nepali forms are translations based off of English version 1.00. This has not changed. However, on 5/23/16, we uploaded new version of the original translations  with a trademark sign next to the SWYC name and the Floating Hospital for Children and Tufts Medical Center logo added. The text of these forms was left unchanged.
 9/1/16 SWYC 101 for Front Desk Staff and Scoring Cheat Sheet  V2 New logo and copyright language added
 9/1/16 All English language component and age-specific forms, scoring guides V1.06 POSI website link added to the POSI forms. Updated copyright and logos added as needed. No substantive changes were made to the content of the forms.
 9/1/16 All Burmese and Nepali forms v2, 5-23-16 New logo and copyright language added. No substantive changes were made to the content of the forms. Version number was not changed.
 9/1/16 All Spanish forms v1.06 New logo and copyright language added. No substantive changes were made to the content of the forms. Version number was updated. Bilingual version of all forms added with the same version number. 
 9/1/16 All Portuguese forms  v2, 5-23-16 New logo and copyright language added. No substantive changes were made to the content of the forms. Version number was not changed. Bilingual version of all forms added with the same version number. 
 11/23/16  Portuguese/English Bilingual 36 Month Form
 v2 The first item on the Portuguese/English Bilingual 36 Month Form accidentally appeared in English twice. This error has been corrected and version number was not changed
