Developmental Screening


At Desert Valley Pediatrics, we offer developmental screenings for children from birth to age 5. Our knowledgeable providers are trained to assess a child’s physical, cognitive, language, and social-emotional development to ensure that all children receive the care they need in order to reach their full potential.


Screenings are conducted by experienced and knowledgeable professionals who have a deep understanding of child development. We use evidence-based tools and practices to ensure accurate and informative results. In addition, we provide follow-up and referrals to specialists, if needed.

Question: What does a developmental screening involve?

Answer: A developmental screening typically involves a questionnaire about the child’s development and a physical exam to assess the child’s height, weight, and gross motor skills.

Question: What should parents do if a developmental delay is suspected?

Answer: If a developmental delay is suspected, parents should speak with their child’s doctor about further testing or a referral to a specialist.
