One in four children are at risk for developmental delay. However, most children are diagnosed with a delay after the age when treatments have the greatest impact. The results of a developmental screening are crucial for understanding the appropriate next steps for your child which could include a more in-depth assessment, diagnosis and/or therapies.
Developmental screening is the practice of systematically looking for and monitoring a young child’s development across domains such as motor skills, cognitive and emotional development. Screening helps professionals determine whether more in-depth assessment is the next step.
