As they grow, children are always learning new things. It’s important to keep track of your child’s development and get help if you’re concerned.

Developmental and behavioral screenings assure that children are making progress in areas such as language, social and motor skills. All children should receive regular screening assessments. Autism screening is simple and quick. If a delay or risk for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is identified, early intervention can make a difference, so don’t wait!
