Why Screen?

It’s fast! It’s Simple…And it’s FREE

Screenings are a quick way of monitoring for healthy development children. Early identification of issues in development are more likely to increase the success that a child can have in treatment.

In the United States, it is reported that approximately 17% of children have a developmental or behavioral issue.  Issues can include: delayed crawling or walking, feeding issues, delayed speech, trouble writing, and fine and gross motor deficits amongst other issues.  Often these issues can be subtle and often go undiagnosed.

Less than half of children with delays are identified before starting school. When developmental delays are not recognized early it can impact not only their ability to succeed once starting school but their self-esteem as well.

Therapediatrics provides free 15-20 minute screenings to briefly assess a child’s development and determine if a full evaluation is needed. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s development and would like to schedule a screening or just even talk to one of our experienced and licensed staff members regarding concerns about your child, simply give us a call.
