Racing Ahead Offers Free Developmental Screenings in Santa Ana, California for Children at Risk for Developmental Delays

April 9, 2010

SANTA ANA, Calif., April 9 /PRNewswire/ — Racing Ahead, an organization providing assessments, early intervention services and individual instruction for infants and toddlers and their parents is offering free developmental screenings on Saturday, April 10, 2010, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Santa Ana, CA. The developmental screenings will assess a child’s language, motor and social development.

It is important to identify developmental delays in infants and toddlers as early as possible so that interventions can be started to get a child back onto a typical developmental track. The Racing Ahead approach focuses on teaching parents and primary caregivers effective strategies to promote child development and the acquisition of social, motor, and language skills.

The screenings for children up to age five will include the completion of a questionnaire by the child’s parent or caregiver about activities their child is (or is not) able to do. The answers are scored and help to determine whether the child’s development is on track or whether the child should be referred for a developmental checkup with a professional. A professional psychologist will work with the family to review the results of the screening questionnaire.

The free developmental screenings will be held at 1526 Brookhollow Drive, Suite 73 in Santa Ana, CA.

Call (877) 815-RACE (7223) or email info@racingahead.org for an appointment and directions to the Racing Ahead offices.
