Developmental screening provides information on how children are doing as they grow. Like a yardstick for measuring height, developmental screening is a tool that helps families measure important areas of their children’s development through the early years. It tells if your child’s development is on track. It also tells you if more information or an evaluation is needed in any of the areas listed below.
There are other types of screening for physical health, oral health, nutrition, and vision and hearing. Your child’s healthcare provider can determine if your child is on track in these important areas.
