How Help Me Grow Works

Universal Developmental Screening Registry (UDSR)

The Universal Developmental Screening Registry (UDSR) allows screening results to be securely shared across clinical and community settings to ensure young children are connected to developmental supports. Participating practices and providers are encouraged to access and review developmental screenings completed by early educators, home visitors, and others to inform their surveillance and screening activities during health supervision visits.
