Health and Developmental Screening

The Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge grant provides the opportunity for North Carolina to expand investments in initiatives designed to increase the number of children with high needs who are screened, referred for services, receive appropriate follow up and participate in ongoing health care. Through the Assuring Better Health and Child Development (ABCD), Child Care Health Consultant, Family Connects, and Health Social Behaviors strategies, the grant will build on established statewide infrastructure to enhance health and developmental screening opportunities for young children.
