The Early Intervention Program's Developmental Monitoring Unit assists families in tracking their child's development from birth to 3. Families can fill out a questionnaire known as the Ages and Stages 3 Questionnaire. This will give the family a picture of how their child is developing compared to other children their age.
A Developmental Monitoring Specialist will score the Ages and Stages 3 questionnaire and then talk with the family about the results and any next steps they might want to take. Next steps might be: completing another questionnaire, finding fun activities to do at home to help their child develop, or being evaluated for Early Intervention services.
