How does the Follow Along Program work?
A professional, most often a nurse, may visit with you to tell you more about the program and find out more about your child. You will then be asked to sign a permission form.

Next, questionnaires are sent to you when your child reaches different ages such as 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 30, and 36 months old. Each questionnaire asks how your child is growing, playing, talking, moving, and acting. Sheets with fun activities for you to do with your child, or other age appropriate items, are also sent to you.

The results of the questionnaires will be shared with you. If there are any concerns, a nurse or other professional from the program will get in touch with you. Together, you can talk about choices for further evaluation or early help services.

After your child is 36 months old, you will get information about the next step, which is also known as the Early Childhood Screening.
