Wyoming Act Early

Row of babies smiling

Welcome to the Wyoming Act Early website. We help parents, health care professionals, and child care providers learn about developmental milestones and their role in the early identification of autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities. Enhanced awareness of the developmental milestones leads to more timely assessments, earlier diagnosis, and referrals for early intervention.

Seeing your child reach developmental milestones can be fun and memorable moments. Parents and grandparents often watch for a child’s first steps and words, and remember those moments forever.

But sometimes children have delays in their development, such as not babbling, not responding to their names, or avoiding eye contact. 

When you have concerns about your child’s development, talk to your child’s primary care provider (medical home). They provide developmental screenings and are part of monitoring your child's overall health. They can also help you find resources in the community if additional testing or treatment is needed. You can also find answers to some frequently asked question on our website.

The goal of this project is to educate parents, health care professionals, and child care providers about developmental milestones and the early identification of autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities. Specifically, we seek to increase screening using the Autism Speaks screening measures and promote early intervention among children with potential developmental disorders. Please take out survey to help us collect information on how to better provide services.
