Screening/Early Identification: About

Wisconsin Early Childhood Collaborating Partners promotes routine developmental screening for all children from birth to entry into school.

Developmental screening with validated tools provides families and professionals with information about how a child’s development compares with other children of the same age.

Screening increases rates of early identification of children with developmental delays and disabilities. Early identification allows for timely referral to appropriate supports and services so that all children can reach their full developmental potential.

There are numerous projects throughout the State supporting these efforts. To learn more, visit our “Family Resources” and “Professional & Community Resources” pages.
