Promoting child development across New York during the pandemic

Report released by Docs for Tots and the Schuyler Center

The NY Acts project, a Centers for Disease Control (CDC)-funded project led by Docs for Tots, worked to increase the capacity to coordinate statewide efforts around developmental promotion and early identification during COVID-19 utilizing existing activities, resources and materials. This new report from the Schuyler Center for Analysis and Advocacy outlines how the NY Acts project successfully worked with 10 state-level/wide early childhood initiatives to:

  • Train 700 providers to utilize Learn the Signs, Act Early materials with families to promote developmental monitoring
  • Disseminate 16,000 LTSAE materials to families with information on developmental milestones
  • Increase parent downloads of the CDC’s Milestone Tracker app by 33%

Lessons learned and next steps are suggested in this report to continue the momentum of the project.
