Kansas Initiative for Developmental Ongoing Screening (KIDOS)
 

The Kansas Initiative for Developmental Ongoing Screening (KIDOS) seeks to expand upon existing efforts and infrastructure in order to effectively coordinate, improve, and track developmental screenings and referrals for infants and toddlers across a variety of early childhood support systems in Kansas, including: home visiting, child care and early education settings, pediatric health care providers, early intervention services, and families.

The KIDOS project is funded by a federal Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) manages the grant project. The University of Kansas Center for Public Partnerships and Research (KU-CPPR) provides Project Coordination and Evaluation.

KIDOS has an online website with additional information and resources, www.ScreenEarlyStartStrong.org. Early childhood and health partners can access an online toolkit, schedule trainings on using Ages and Stages Questionnaires®, and more.
