9-24-13 ages and stages questionnaire

There is a call to action across Wisconsin for caregivers to screen their children for early identification of developmental concerns.   To that end, the Fond du Lac Community Partnership for Young Children has launched a community screening initiative.  Fond du Lac County Public Health officer, Kim Mueller says Fond du lac County is the first county in the state to offer a community-wide developmental screening site designed to improve quality early childhood development.
Mueller says a display is permanently housed at the Health Department WIC Office and parents are encouraged to select and complete the appropriate questionnaire for their child’s age.  "Early screening has shown that the earlier you can find problems and fix them the better the child will develop overall,"  Mueller told AM 1170 WFDL's Between the Lines program.
