Screening for Developmental Delays

Birth to 3
The Birth to 3 Program is for children ages birth to 36 months. Eligibility is based on a diagnosed disability or significant delay in one or more areas of development. The team will evaluate the child’s ability to:

learn (cognitive development); move, see and hear (physical/motor development); communicate and understand other’s communication (speech and language development); respond to and relate with others (social and emotional development); and eat, dress and care for daily living needs (adaptive development).

No matter where you live in Wisconsin, the county is responsible for providing Birth to 3 Program services to eligible children and their families. Contact the Birth to 3 Program in the county where you live if you are concerned about your child’s development. Click here for more.


Early Childhood Special Education Programs

Each school district in Wisconsin is responsible for providing a continuum of Special Education and Related Services to Children with Disabilities and who need special education. Children are evaluated to determine if they met the one of the state’s eligibility criteria. Special education and related services may provide consultation to staff, direct services to the child, training related to the disability, and other services that are identified in the child’s Individualized Education Program.
