Physical, social-emotional, and cognitive screenings are an important first step in identifying and remedying developmental delays that have the potential to occur in early childhood.The health care system provides regular Well Child visits to many Brown County children, and these visits include screenings. The screenings that are part of these check-ups, however, only provide the identification of children with potential developmental delays. Remediation is provided through other means. Many of the children identified with potential developmental delays are referred to the Brown County Birth to Three Program for additional support. In our community, the data shows that more than 50% of children ages 0-3 who are identified as having potential developmental delays do not receive service. We also know that there is no formal detection system for social-emotional delays for our kids.

The opportunity for Action Team One is to integrate a standardized system that connects the screenings for early childhood developmental delays done in the health systems with the Birth to Three Program. Action Team One originally kicked off their work in March of 2017. The team has already identified specific opportunities for improvement within the current screening and referral process and is working towards improving that system. More information will be added as the team works through our Continuous Improvement Process. For updates, make sure to keep an eye on our News page.

Community Online ASQ System (COAS)

COAS was created to be a system which will provide reliable communication and continues to  reestablished and maintain between all partners. 

The second goal is forge a solution that will continue to adapt to the changing needs of Project Team members and stakeholders, in addition to future Brown County community partners.  

Project Functions: Implementing ASQ Online will provide an accessible, universal method of connecting community partners while offering wraparound services to all children 0-5 in Brown County, reducing staff effort allocated to conducting screenings and tracking communications, and decreasing the risk of human error.
