Developmental Screening

Developmental screening takes a closer look at how a child is developing. It is a more formal process of checking a child’s development. Screening goes beyond monitoring a child and allows for more specific information to help identify possible developmental delays that may need further evaluation by a professional.

DESE's Office of Childhood (OOC) has created developmental screening information for parent education and early care and education professionals who administer developmental screenings for children birth to kindergarten entry.
