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.
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.
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.
