The Importance of Early Childhood Developmental Screenings at HHM Health

In our ongoing commitment to providing holistic healthcare, HHM Health proudly offers Early Childhood Developmental Screenings—a comprehensive service extending across behavioral health, pediatrics and vision. For children aged 1 month through 5 years, these screenings are a pivotal part of our mission to nurture the lifelong well-being of both parents and children.

What Developmental Tests Look At

Developmental and behavioral screening tests assess a child’s progress in various areas, including vision, hearing, dental health, speech/language skills, gross and fine motor skills, physical growth and social-emotional/behavioral development. Utilizing checklists and questionnaires, these screenings compare a child’s milestones to those of other children of the same age.

Why Early Childhood Developmental Screenings Matter

Early identification of developmental delays is crucial. Conditions like intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy and hearing problems can be addressed more effectively with early intervention. Our screenings follow the guidelines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), ensuring that every child is screened at key developmental stages—9 months, 18 months and 30 months. Additional screenings for autism spectrum disorder are conducted at 18 and 24 months.

Personalized Care Across Service Lines

At HHM Health, we take pride in being a healthcare home where providers seamlessly collaborate across service lines to address health concerns. Our commitment to personalized care extends to Early Childhood Developmental Screenings, where our experienced team, including play therapists and pediatricians, works together to ensure each child’s unique needs are met.
