A behavioral evaluation and referral unit (BERU) was established in a Children and Youth Project, to facilitate the referral of children with learning and behavioral problems that were beyond the scope of the general pediatrician. The BERU assessed the need for referral, determined the most appropriate receiving agency, initiated the appointment, and ascertained if the appointment was kept. Results of the program revealed that 48% of referrals to BERU were referred outside the Children and Youth Project. Eighty-four percent of this group completed their referral. Sixty percent received additional care either within or outside the Children and Youth Project. BERU evaluation was required for 25% of behavioral and learning problems presenting in a general pediatric clinic.
