LAS VEGAS -- Easter Seals Nevada, in partnership with CVS Caremark Charitable Trust, is now providing the first online and free of charge Ages & Stages Questionnaires by Brookes Publishing.
With the help of the free ASQ, parents and caregivers can easily track their children’s development through age 5 and make sure they are hitting necessary milestones. In Nevada, 15,981 kids under the age of 3 are at risk of developmental delays or disabilities, yet only 1,892 are currently receiving early intervention services.
“The Ages & Stages Questionnaire is a wonderful tool to help identify possible developmental delays and disabilities early on to ensure that children receive the critical services that are needed,” said Brian Patchett, President and CEO of Easter Seals Nevada. “Easter Seals is proud to offer this tool to families in the Nevada community.”
Easter Seals Nevada is the largest community provider of Early Intervention services in the state. The organization recently expanded to northern Nevada, and now provides services to more than 7,000 individuals with disabilities.
