Getting a Developmental Screening for Your Child
If you would like to schedule a developmental screening for your child, there are a few different ways you can do that:
- Your Child’s Pediatrician. Not only will your child’s doctor be able to help you understand where your child is developmentally, they can also give you helpful advice on how to continue to support your child’s healthy development or refer you to any appropriate early intervention services.
- Your Child’s Early Learning or Child Care Center. Here in Oak Park and River Forest, many early learning centers administer developmental screenings at their programs through the Collaboration for Early Childhood Developmental Screening Project. You can see a list of participating programs here.
- You Local School District. For children ages 3-5, your local school district can support you with any questions you may have. You can find a list of local school districts and contact information here.
- Your Local Child and Family Connections Office. You may wish to contact your local Child and Family Connections (CFC) office directly. They can help determine if your child is eligible for early intervention services, and help you get those services. To find your local CFC office, visit our Developmental Referral and Services Directory and click on “Early Intervention.” If you are an Oak Park resident, your Child and Family Connections Office is CFC 7.
