Who We Are

Sprouts Child Development employs a multidisciplinary approach to working with young children. In addition to speech and occupational therapy services, our team includes child development specialists, a licensed clinical social worker, and a developmental pediatrician; providing a comprehensive approach to the assessment and treatment of a child’s developmental needs. 

One of our primary goals is helping young children receive the earliest developmental care and support needed. Through screening, assessment, and therapy we partner with families and caregivers to ensure every child has access to early intervention, having the greatest positive impact on their healthy development and future success. 

We are a nonprofit child development organization offering developmental screening, assessment, and therapy with a focus on assisting families in overcoming identified barriers and finding services that best meet their child’s needs.

We strive to ensure all young children are developmentally successful.

Our Vision: Every family has access to the information and resources needed to support the healthy development of their child.

Our Mission: To provide reliable early childhood resources, developmental assessments, and connections to early intervention services. 

Our Focus: Children not served by other early intervention systems. As a nonprofit, Sprouts is a unique model. Neither IDEA nor income guidelines are used as criteria to serve a child. As a result, children who might otherwise fall in the gaps between these important systems can access and benefit from Sprouts’ resources and services.

Our Team of Developmental Specialists

Sprouts Child Development is a developmental resource program that includes a website built around an online screening link, the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) available FREE to parents and caregivers in Tulsa (and for a small fee for those out of state). The five areas of development screened are communication, fine motor, gross motor, problem-solving, and personal-social skills. For children needing further assessment beyond the ASQ, Sprouts has a clinical team of highly skilled speech pathologists and child development specialists, who provide multidisciplinary mid-level evaluation, referral to appropriate services in the community, and continued care coordination with the family and child’s physician. The team of developmental specialists reviews each ASQ-3 and ASQ-SE2 screening as it comes in through the website, then personalized feedback and developmental resources tailored to each child is provided.

What is Developmental Screening?

Children’s physical growth is measured by looking at their height and weight, but growth also involves development. As they grow and learn, it’s important to know how they are developing. Although no two children progress exactly alike, there are stages known as developmental milestones to help guide you.

If there are questions or concerns along the way, steps can be taken to help children reach their full potential by completing a developmental screening questionnaire. The Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) is a screening tool recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics that focuses on five areas of development: communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving and personal-social skills.

The ASQ screening tool is completed by a parent or caregiver and helps make sure a child’s growth and development is progressing as it should. The ASQ looks at each child’s unique development and provides information specific to your child. Access the ASQ Screening >
