First of Its Kind Free Developmental Evaluations for Kids – Children’s Specialized Hospital Partners with Kohl’s Cares
February 14, 2013 - Children's Specialized Hosptial

Experts from Children’s Specialized Hospital are providing free, quick developmental evalutions for children ages 1 to 5 years old and sharing resources for parents curious about early childhood development. This community service is made possible by the Kohl’s KidsAbilities program at Children’s Specialized Hospital through the generosity of Kohl’s Cares. 
 
Children’s Specialized Hospital is the first hospital in New Jersey to provide developmental evaluations in the community. Early identification of young children who have developmental delays is key to a timely delivery of intervention services. This screening is the first step in obtaining needed services for young children. Educational materials will be available for families as to what to expect from their children at different ages. Over the course of the 11 months, the hospital will host 16 screening clinics at public libraries and participating Kohl’s locations. 
 
Each screening will include an interactive questionnaire and conversation between parent(s), child and Children's Specialized Hospital staff.
