Online Screening Tool for Young Children Presented at Conference on Maternal and Child Health Programs 

Katie Volk, Senior Project Director at C4, and Carmela DeCandia, Ph.D., of Artemis Associates are presenting about “Developing the Neurodevelopmental Ecological Screening Tool: Bridging the Gap for Children in Low Resourced Settings” at the Annual Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs Conference on Monday, March 11 from 2:30-3:30 pm in San Antonio, Texas.

Volk and DeCandia have been leading the development of the Neurodevelopmental Ecological Screening Tool (NEST) for children ages 3-5. It helps service providers and parents in low-resource environments assess how a child is developing and identify ways to minimize risk factors and build resilience.

The conference is sponsored by the Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs.
