The SCC R&R supports early screening of children’s development and connects families to the resources they need to ensure the best outcomes for their children.
A developmental screening takes a closer look at how a child is developing. The tools used for developmental and behavioral screening are formal questionnaires or checklists based on research that ask questions about a child’s development, including language, movement, thinking, behavior, and emotions. These include the Ages and Stages Questionnaires® Third Edition (ASQ-3) and Ages and Stages Questionnaires®: Social Emotional (ASQ:SE-2).
With regular screenings, families, teachers, and service providers can help young children with delays get the services and supports they need as early as possible to help them catch up and thrive alongside their peers.
Below is a list of programs you can contact to find out where you can complete a developmental screening for your child. If you need more help finding a resource, our R&R Program Specialists would be happy to help you. You can contact the SCC R&R Program directly at 669-212-KIDS (5437) or by emailing.
