Learn the Signs. Act Early. 

With Crossroads Youth & Family Services

As a parent, you already have what it takes to help your young child learn and grow. Watch your child’s amazing progress by tracking his or her developmental milestones —how he or she plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves – and sharing that progress with your child’s doctor, teachers, and other early childhood professionals. Acting early on developmental concerns can make a real difference for your child and you! If you’re concerned about your child’s development, don’t wait. You know your child best.


Crossroads Youth and Family Services Head Start and Early Head Start Programs are proud partners of the CDC’s “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” program, which encourages parents and providers to learn the signs of healthy development, monitor every child’s early development, and act early when there is a concern.
