CVS Caremark and Easter Seals Help Make the First Five Years of Life Count for Kids

According to the National Survey of Children's Health 2007, one in five households with children has a child with a special health care need and could benefit from screening and services, yet less than 20 percent of children under the age of 5 receive a developmental screening.  Easter Seals, through the generous support of the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust, is now making it possible for parents and caregivers to easily track their children's' development through age 5 by means of a free online screening tool.
Traditionally used by clinicians, therapists, professionals, and educators, Brookes Publishing's Ages & Stages Questionnaires (ASQ)® is now available to parents and caregivers on Easter Seals' Make the First Five Count website to monitor child development and identify potential issues so that any concerns can be readily addressed to make sure they are on track and ready to enter school.
