Early Childhood Developmental Screenings
A Developmental Screening offers a snapshot of a child's current abilities across developmental domains (communication, fine motor, gross motor, problem solving, personal-social, and social-emotional). The results will help determine if a child is developing skills as expected, or if there may be a concern regarding development within a specific domain.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children be screened at 9, 18, 24, and 30 months of age, and every year thereafter, to ensure that development is on track, and to help families seek additional resources or referrals for evaluations, if needed.
To complete the screening questionnaires for your child (there are two), please select the appropriate link below.
