The Early Intervention Program's Developmental Monitoring Unit assists families in tracking their child's development from birth to age 3. Families can fill out a questionnaire, called the Ages and Stages 3 Questionnaire to see how their child is developing compared to other children their age.
A Developmental Monitoring Specialist will score the questionnaire and then talk with the family about the results. The specialist may suggest next steps for the family, including: completing another questionnaire, finding fun activities to do at home to help their child develop, or an evaluation for Early Intervention services.
To make a referral to Developmental Monitoring, call 311 and say that you want to refer a child to Developmental Monitoring, or fill out a Referral Form (PDF) and fax it to the relevant number listed on the form.
