Assessment in Early Childhood

Screening detects developmental delays in children—and celebrates milestones. Screening young children is an effective, efficient way for professionals to gauge developmental progress and determine meaningful next steps—at a time when action can have its greatest impact: during a child’s first years of life. In fact, intervention prior to kindergarten has huge academic, social, and economic benefits.
