Developmental screenings help families and providers to determine if a child is developing on track, and, if there are concerns, developmental screenings point to activities and interventions.
Children that have delays in one or more areas of development can often make considerable gains when issues are identified and when interventions start early. Developmental screening can also help families with typically developing children to understand and support optimal growth.
First 5 El Dorado supports developmental screenings through Together We Grow.
