Salem Family Resources connects families with agencies that conduct screenings of young children to assess their general development and referrals to appropriate services and resources that help children grow and develop successfully.

"Watch Me Grow" is a developing system of screening and referral to ensure that families with children birth to six years old in New Hampshire are consistently able to access developmental information, support, health and developmental screenings. 

Parents remain with their child and are the reporters of behaviors and information about their children.  Salem Family Resources screenings employ the Ages & Stages Questionnaire, (ASQ-3), a standardized, developmental and social-emotional screening for children from ages one month to 5 ½ years.  The ASQ assesses strengths and trouble spots, educates parents about developmental milestones, and incorporates parents' expert knowledge about their children.

Screenings take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Please contact us for referral and contacts for a developmental screening for your child.
