Early Childhood Developmental Screenings Open a World of Possibilities.
Active Physical Therapy is proud to offer developmental screenings for children which includes a gross and fine motor checklist. This will allow us to see how your child is developing. If you feel they aren't meeting their milestones, feel free to schedule a consultation with one of our therapists.
How your child plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves offers important clues about their development. Every child's behaviors and tendencies are unique to them, so to understand it, we begin with an in-depth evaluation using scientifically-based assessment tools administered by one of our therapists. From this, we create a custom therapy plan. We find many parents also gain a deeper understanding of their child from this assessment.
If you find your child qualifies for therapy based on the answers to our checklist questions, it's important they seek a specialist as early as possible. This allows the children to receive the services and support they need to reach their full potential.
Developmental monitoring involves observing how your child grows and whether your child meets the typical developmental milestones, or skills that most children reach by a certain age, in playing, learning, speaking, behaving, and moving.

If you notice that your child is not meeting milestones, schedule an appointment for a consultation. Our OT will make you and your child feel comfortable throughout the entire process.
Developmental screening questionnaires and checklists are based on research that compares your child to other children of the same age. Questions may ask about language, movement, and thinking skills, as well as behaviors and emotions. Developmental screenings can be done by our pediatric therapists at Active Physical Therapy.
