Developmental and Sensory Screening
University of Arizona Gila County Cooperative Extension
From birth to age 5, a child experiences more brain development than at any other time in life. The Developmental and Sensory Screening Program, supported by First Things First, provides resources to help keep your child’s development on track.
Contact staff in your area to schedule a free hearing, vision or developmental milestone screening for your young child (ages 0-5).
Developmental Milestones Handout
Though each child is different, developmental milestones are skills and behaviors most children learn to do by a specific age (0-5). Working on these skills and behaviors will help your child maximize their developmental progress. Download the handout below for more information.
At-Home Activity Videos
These fun and simple activities are perfect for young children (ages 0-5). Each video is an opportunity for children to work on problem-solving, fine and gross motor skills, vocabulary and social skills.
Tummy Time Handout
Tummy time (playing with your toddler while they lay on their stomach) is an important activity for development. It can help strengthen muscles, improve motor skills, and prepare your toddler to crawl. Download the handout below to learn more.
Download the handouts below and give your young child (age 0-5) fun activities that challenge their fine motor and vocabulary skills.
