The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)- “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” Campaign


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has developed a program called “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” This program improves early identification of children with developmental delays and disabilities by promoting parent-engaged developmental monitoring and facilitating early action on concerns. This initiative encourages parents and providers to learn the signs of healthy development, monitor every child’s early development, and take action when there is a concern. The program offers free checklists and other tools to make developmental monitoring practical and easy.

Among the tools this program offers are free developmental checklists, a Milestone Tracker App, a milestone moments booklet, free children’s books, tips sheets, training resources and customizable promotional materials, to name a few.
