Care for Kids - For Families

Developmental Screenings and the Early ACCESS Program

Your child’s growth and development is very important for your child and for you. If you have questions about your child’s growth and development, Care for Kids and the Early ACCESS Program are here to help you take a closer look.

Care for Kids Developmental Screenings:

The Care for Kids Program at the Scott County Health Department can provide free developmental screenings for your child to help tell you your child’s strengths, show any areas of concern, and tell you if there are community resources or services, such as the Early ACCESS Program, that can be helpful for your child or your family.

To find out more about the developmental screenings for your child, call the Scott County Care for Kids program.

Early ACCESS Program:

Early ACCESS logoThe Early ACCESS Program is a partnership between families with young children (birth to age three) and early childhood providers, including the Area Education Agency (AEA) and Child Health Specialty Clinics (CHSC). The purpose of this program is for families and staff to work together in finding, setting up, and providing needed services and resources that will help the family assist their infant or toddler to grow and develop.

If you have concerns about your child’s development, you can connect to the Early ACCESS system in your area by going to www.EarlyACCESSIowa.org; Iowa's free statewide information and referral service for people with disabilities, their families, their service providers and other members of the community.
