Did You Know?
Did You Know? is a feature from the Center for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support to inform your prevention activities. We invite you to read, share, and take action!
- About 1 in 6 children have developmental delays or disabilities, and children from families with low incomes, like those served by WIC, are at even greater risk.
- Early intervention services for developmental delays and disabilities can change a child’s developmental path and improve their learning and health outcomes.
- The WIC Developmental Milestone Checklist Program Online Implementation Guide can help WIC staff engage parents in monitoring their children’s development, identify children with delays or disabilities, and make timely referrals to early intervention services.
