Developmental Screenings

We are using developmental screens in our office at many checkups to make sure we don’t miss any subtle problems.  Our office has a special developmental nurse, Janice Genova, who can, when needed,  perform more in-depth screens of preschool age children to better define their strengths and weaknesses.
