Body mass index (BMI) is a useful screening tool for assessing weight status. It is a measurement that may be used to determine whether a child or teen is overweight or obese. Children's and teen's bodies change as they age and differ between boys and girls.

However, your child must still appear at the ASC if a biometrics appointment has been scheduled by USCIS. You cannot ignore this notice. It's likely that your child is being called in for a "Code 2" biometrics appointment. For children who are adjusting status, this information is necessary for the generation of the permanent resident card (also known as a green card).

Developmental screening takes a closer look at how your child is developing. Your child will get a brief test, or you will complete a questionnaire about your child. The tools used for developmental and behavioral screening are formal questionnaires or checklists based on research that ask questions about a child’s development, including language, movement, thinking, behavior, and emotions.

A typical biometric screening will be conducted by a nurse or phlebotomist and should always include a fasting i ntravenous blood draw. Some screening providers try and sell the finger-stick method for cost and convenience reasons, but studies show that the results are often inconsistent and unreliable.

If USCIS lists your child under 14 years old on the biometrics appointment notice, your child must attend the biometrics appointment. If your child is not listed on the notice, then they do not need to attend the biometrics appointment. If USCIS listed your child's name on the biometrics notice, they need your child's biometrics information to process your child’s application. If your child is applying for a Green Card, the ASC may also need to take their photo for the card.
