Concerns About Development
The CDC has launched a campaign to help parents and professionals better recognize signs of a developmental delay. Called “Learn the Signs, Act Early,” it includes general developmental milestones to help measure your child’s development against peers; information about developmental screening tools, and much more.

The organization First Signs, Inc. is dedicated to the early identification of and intervention for children with autism and other related disorders.

If after reviewing these materials, you are concerned about your child’s development and your child is under 3 years old, seek a free educational evaluation from Sooner Start, Oklahoma’s early intervention program for families of infants and toddlers who have or are suspected of having developmental delays.
If your child is 3 years of age or older and you are concerned about your child’s development, seek a free educational evaluation from your local public education agency (school district) Child Find office.
