Developmental Disabilities Month

You're reading http://debacabhpclc10.blogspot.com/

Watching children grow and develop is one of life's great mysteries. But what do you do if you suspect
your child is not developing as they should? Developmental screening is an important aspect of caring
for your growing child. Not all developmental disabilities are obvious. Unfortunately, many primary
health care providers do not feel equipped to give parents the information about childhood growth and
development they crave. Your family health care provider or pediatrician should check your child regu-
larly to see that he or she is achieving developmental milestones. The CDC is a great resource for infor-
mation about developmental milestones and screening. If you have any concerns at all about your
child's behavior, intellectual or emotional capacity, do not hesitate to talk to a health care provider and
ask for a referral for further screening.
