Service Details


The Follow Along Program (FAP) helps to make sure children are playing, talking, growing, moving, and behaving like others the same age.

It helps parents:
* Learn and ask questions about child development and health
* Figure out "what to teach" and "at what age" to teach it
* Get information about other helping services

How it works:
* Parents get a call or visit from a public health department early childhood professional to learn about their child.
* Questionnaires that ask how their child is growing, playing, talking, moving, and acting are sent to parents when their child reaches certain ages.
- Results are shared and if there are concerns, a nurse or other professional contacts the parent about what they can do.

This service ends when a child passes 36 months old. At that time, parents get information about how to enroll their children in a different program called Early Childhood Screening.
