Baby with Wooden Toy

It's best not to wait, get help today

Complete an online screening and get started

The first concern a caregiver may have about their child's development is that their child is not talking.  Early identification and treatment have been proven to be the key to long term positive effects.  Don't wait!  The earlier a child begins treatment the higher potential for positive change. 

Early intervention makes a difference!

Communication and Symbolic Behavior Scales Developmental Profile
Infant-Toddler Checklist 

This Checklist is designed to identify different aspects of development in infants and toddlers.  Many behaviors that develop before children talk may indicate whether or not a child will have difficulty learning to talk.  This Checklist should be completed by a caregiver when the child is between 6 and 24 months of age to determine whether a referral for an evaluation is needed. You may complete this screener if your child is 24-26 months old and not using words to communicate.  The caregiver may be either a parent or another person who nurtures the child daily.  If you are not sure, please choose the closest response based on your experience.  Children at your child's age are not necessarily expected to use all the behaviors listed.
