Your child's early development is a journey. It includes many developmental milestones for how they play, learn, speak, and act.

Act Early Louisiana aims to educate parents and professionals about healthy childhood development, early warning signs of autism and other developmental disorders, the importance of routine developmental screening, and timely early intervention whenever there is a concern. Whether you are a parent or a professional who works with young children and their families, our hope is that you will find helpful information at the Act Early Louisiana website to promote healthy development in all children.
