Watch clips of our parents and family
support staff working together as partners to identify and address
developmental screening concerns of children. When parents and staff help each
other, they learn about their strengths, and the strengths of their children
while learning from each other’s personal life experiences.
When screenings reveal concerns, it is important for
parents to feel confident in their decisions and connect with resources that address
their children’s needs. Meet Diane, a
child development specialist, who discusses how professionals can support
parents in their decision to seek services for their children.
