TN Ahead In Developmental Screenings
A recent report shows Tennessee is leading most states when it comes to screening low-income children for developmental issues.
The Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth released the report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation today.
According to the report, only four states are screening more low-income children for such issues. It says addressing problems earlier costs less and provides the opportunity to intervene before those problems escalate.
The report stresses providing children with the services and support they need for cognitive, social and emotional development during the first eight years of their lives.
It calls that time period foundational for assuring success in school and life.
