Why Do a Developmental Screening?
Screenings ask specific questions about what your child can do. They give you a detailed look at your child’s development. Screenings are a great way to identify your child’s strengths. They can also highlight any areas where your child may need more practice or support.
- Screening is a fun way to get to know your child
- Screening results can help you talk to your doctor or other professionals about any concerns with your child
- Online screenings are FREE for parents in San Mateo County, thanks to funding from First 5 San Mateo County.
How to Complete an Online Screening
Please complete both questionnaires, the General Development screening and the Social-Emotional Development screening. Together, they give you a full snapshot of your child’s motor, cognitive, language, and social-emotional skills.
There is a relationship between a child’s behavior and development. The two Ages and Stages Questionnaires can help parents better understand this connection.
