Developmental Screening

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.

Why is Developmental Screening Important?

Developmental screening is important for all young children. We know that children grow and learn at their own rate, but it’s still important to assure that they are developing as expected. Developmental screening is a fast and fun way to:
  • Make sure children are on track
  • Learn about what’s coming next in a child’s development
  • Discover new ways to help children grow and learn

How Often to Screen Children?

Screening children regularly is also the best way to catch any concerns early when the right information at the right time makes all the difference! All young children should be screened early and often beginning in infancy and to age six. WMG uses developmental screening questionnaires called “Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ)-3” and “ASQ-Social Emotional.”
