Benefits of Screening at a Child Development Center

Early childhood development centers have so much to offer your family, including free developmental screenings for your children. Regular screenings help raise awareness of your child’s development, making it easier for you to celebrate their milestones and identify any potential development concerns as early as possible. Developmental screenings identify delays early on, allowing experts to create individualized plans and perform any appropriate interventions that will improve a child’s ability to thrive. Having a screening at a Child Development Center is beneficial because these centers can provide families with resources, services, and support. It’s also free for qualifying children and families, and you won’t need to make an appointment with your family’s pediatrician. Child Development Centers offer these services and more:
