Developmental Screening

NH Statewide Watch Me Grow data showed that Coos conducted 15 % of all screenings tracked by the program statewide.

In these data, you will notice that the total screenings are greater than the number of individual children screened; this is because children are screened at intervals - at 6, 12, and 18 months, for example. So one child may have 1 or more screenings. Like a yardstick for measuring height, developmental screening is a tool that helps families measure important areas of their children's development through the early years.
