  • Screening identifies delays early, when interventions can help the most.
  • It helps ensure better futures. Studies show* that children who receive early treatment for developmental delays are more likely to graduate from high school, hold jobs, and live independently.
  • It’s recommended by the AAP. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all infants and young children be screened for delays as a regular part of their ongoing health care.
  • It helps parents take an active role in guiding child development. Using a parent-completed screener it gives parents a chance to share their unique insights about their child and learn more about key developmental milestones.
  • It boosts parent-child bonding. Parent-completed screenings are a great bonding experience for parents and children
  • It’s easy and quick. Screening isn’t a long, time-intensive process. It can be completed in a short time with Early Childhood Educators at ExCel Preschool.
