March 2023: Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

We are promoting the Learn the Signs and Act Early Awareness Campaign. From birth
to 5 years old, a child should reach milestones in how he/she plays, learns, speaks,
acts, and moves. Track your child’s development and act early if you have a concern.
We have information & materials that will help you track and celebrate each child’s
developmental milestones.






This video provides information in American Sign Language (ASL) on what to do if you have concerns about your child’s development:
