The Importance of Early Developmental Screenings

Understanding your child’s development is crucial in the early years. Developmental screenings help in identifying potential delays or issues early, allowing for timely intervention and support. At Southtowns Pediatrics, our screenings cover key physical, cognitive, emotional, social, and language development areas.

Our Comprehensive Screening Process

  • Initial Assessment: Our process begins with an initial assessment, during which we gather detailed information about your child's medical history and developmental milestones.
  • Interactive Evaluation: We conduct interactive evaluations using play-based activities and standardized tools to observe and assess your child’s skills and behaviors.
  • Parental Involvement: Parents play a critical role. We encourage you to share your observations and concerns, making you an active participant in the screening process.
  • Personalized Feedback: After the evaluation, we provide personalized feedback, a detailed report on your child’s development, and recommendations for any necessary interventions or resources.
