Birth to 5 Watch Me Thrive – Development Screening Passport

This developmental screening passport is provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Education. Developmental Screening is a way to check your child’s development. It can show if your child is on track or if he or she might benefit from extra help. It is recommended for all young children and can be administered by a doctor, teacher, child care provider, home visitor or other professional. The screening uses a research-based questionnaire about how your child plays, learns, speaks, acts and moves.
