3Developmental Screening

During the first 5 years of life, a child’s brain develops more than at any other time in life. Early brain development has a lasting impact on a child’s ability to learn and succeed in school and life. Developmental screening is an opportunity for parents to check their child’s development and address any potential concerns with the help of resources, and supportive professionals.
