Learn the Signs. Act Early
As part of the work of New Jersey’s Learn the Signs. Act Early. team, the Governor’s Council on the Prevention of Developmental Disabilities provided support to have the following CDC Learn the Sign. Act Early. materials translated into Arabic, Korean, and Portuguese:
  • Developmental Screening Fact Sheet (a fact sheet that contains information for parents about developmental screenings)
  • Milestone Informational Card  (this includes some key milestones from 7 months to 4 years of age and questions parents can ask their child’s doctor)
  • Tips for Talking with Parents (a tip sheet to help early educators and childcare providers share concerns about a child with the parent)

These are available for free downloading from the CDC’s Learn the Signs. Act Early. website:
