What is Developmental Screening?

  • Developmental screening is a short, easy-to-complete formal test of young children’s developmental skills, such as motor, cognitive, language, and social-emotional skills. 

  • Developmental milestones are abilities achieved by most children by a certain age.

  • Developmental screening provides a quick check of your child’s development. It can be thought of as a snapshot of your child’s skills.

  • Screening will help determine if your child is meeting the appropriate milestones for their age.

  •  A developmental screener reliably distinguishes children who should be referred for further, more comprehensive assessment from those who don’t need to be referred.

Why is screening important?

  • It’s estimated that 1 in 7 children are affected by developmental delays, learning disorders, and behavioral and social-emotional problems.

  • Only a fraction of these children (20% to 30%) are identified as needing help before school begins.

  • Parents can check their child’s development and address any potential concerns by participating in a developmental screening program. Intervention before kindergarten has huge benefits because it sets children up for future success!
