Interested in free assistance to improve your screening and referral rates?
The Department of Education in 18 states requires developmental screening for licensing and higher ratings for the Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS).1
Screenings are available in English & Spanish and are easily customizable to your needs.
As the Director of Programs and Education I am always looking for ways to streamline our systems while improving outcomes, increase data integrity , accurately identify children requiring a higher level of services and provide an enhanced experience for our parents. Thru the use of the Baby Noggin app we have been able to identify the correct screening version, reduce the amount of paper copies, ensure fidelity to the screening tool and accurately screen all children in our care. These benefits have opened up additional time for our staff to work directly with the families to provided needed resources and referrals, and create classroom intervention plans aligned with the children’s identified needs
"Parents often don't realize that because they know their child best, they play a huge role in
detecting developmental concerns at a young age. With Baby Noggin, parents have an easy
and educational tool that delivers instant answers to them and their pediatrician about their
child's risk, while providing the opportunity to connect immediately to 211 LA's Care
Coordination services to make sure the child receives the early interventions and resources they
What has me really excited about the potential of BabyNoggin is its ongoing commitment to making critically important, evidence-based developmental screening tools and information easier to access, use and share by putting it at the virtual fingertips of parents, pediatricians and educators.
