Abstract

The purpose of this document is to provide a visual aid for building a strong system of support for children’s mental and social health, ranging from prevention and early identification to intervention. It is estimated that 15 – 18% of school age children have a developmental or behavioral disability, while only half are identified before starting school. Applied to Iowa, these figures mean that almost 78,000 children in our classrooms may have an unidentified delay.
