Your child’s growth and development is very important for your child and for you. If you have questions about your child’s development, social skills or behavior, Care for Kids and the Early ACCESS Program are here to help.

Care for Kids Developmental Screenings:

Do you have a child that is under 6 years of age?

Would you like to know how your child is learning and growing compared to others his or her age?

The Care for Kids Program at the Scott County Health Department offers free developmental screenings to children under 6 years old. The Ages & Stages Questionnaire® (ASQ™) can be completed to check if your child’s general development is on schedule.  Parents or guardians can also use the Ages & Stages Questionnaire: Social Emotional® (ASQ:SE™) to check on your child’s social and emotional development.  Social and emotional development is how well someone can build relationships, identify feelings, and control behaviors. 

Your child can be screened for development and social emotional development in a couple of different ways. 

  1. Ask your child’s health care provider to complete a full developmental screen at your child’s next well-child exam or doctor’s visit.  The state of Iowa recommends that children receive a developmental screen at 9, 18, and 30 months of age.
  2. Complete the Appointment Request Form  and staff will follow-up with you within 2-3 business days.  Staff will provide more information and set up a date and time to complete the screen(s).  You can also call Care for Kids at 563-328-4114 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 8:00-4:30 pm; and Wednesdays from 8:00-5:30 pm for more information.

 

Early ACCESS Program:

The 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).
