Ages & Stages Developmental Screening Hub
Metro United Way's Developmental Screening Hub is a free program for children 2 months to 5 ½ years of age. Parents and caregivers complete a developmental screening called the Ages & Stages Questionnaire®, and if a parent has questions about their child’s development, or the screening identifies a child who needs a little encouragement, trained coordinators connect families to services that can help. Plus the child receives a free book with each questionnaire completed!

In all, families will receive four books per week for 25 weeks. They will also have access to more than 400 books narrated in 40+ languages through Louisville’s digital library.
