Developmental Milestone Video Broadcast in Rural Health Clinics
The Rural Institute for Inclusive Communities (RIIC) has partnered with the Nevada Center for Excellence in Disabilities, Nevada LEND program and Good Health TV to share a developmental milestone video with parents and families.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” (LTSAE) program aims to improve early identification of children with autism and other developmental disabilities so children and families can get the services and support they need. As part of the LTSAE program, a short video will be broadcast in Montana tribal health clinic waiting rooms from mid-February until the end of March. The purpose of the video is to inform parents and families about developmental milestones and to direct them to resources for tracking milestones and addressing concerns. Print materials for tracking childhood development milestones are highlighted in the video and are available in each tribal health clinic.
