The Early Years are the foundation upon which future health, well-being, and life success are established.  Beginning before birth and continuing through kindergarten, children are learning critical language, cognitive, social, and motor skills that will enable them to be successful in school and life.  Early childhood is the most rapid period of development in a human life.  

Although individual children develop at their own pace, most children progress through an identifiable sequence of physical, cognitive, and emotional growth and change.  If you are concerned about your child's language, social, or physical development, visit ASQ Oregon for a no-cost screening tool which can help determine if further evaluation is needed.
