All children in the communities we work in are screened for delayed development at Primary Health Centres, Village Sub-Centres, Anganwadi Centres (Government Pre-Schools), Pre-Schools or directly in their homes.
Our community rehabilitation workers work alongside village health nurses and Anganwadi workers (preschool teachers) to conduct the screening using the Trivandrum Development Screening Chart
All children screened positive are flagged in the EI app for further follow-up by our team.
