EARLY CHILDHOOD  At least six states increase by 15 percent the proportion of children ages 0-3 who receive recommended developmental screening. At least six states commit to improving cross-system information exchange that supports access to services for children identified by screening.

Early Childhood Goal image

An estimated 17% of children in the US have a developmental or behavioral disability like intellectual disability or autism, but less than half of children with these disabilities are identified before starting school . Early identification connects children with disabilities to services so they can start school ready to learn. We hope that by the end of 2015, six states will have increased their current rate of developmental screening for children birth to three by 15 percent and at least six states commit to improving cross-system information exchange that supports access to services for children identified by screening.
