Is Your Child at Risk? 
A questionnaire has been developed by IDPH to assist in determining if a child is at risk for lead poisoning.  A yes to response to any question means your child could possibly become lead poisoned.  The only way to know if a child is lead poisoned is through a blood lead test.
