BX doctors join national campaign to help parents understand child development

Doctors from the Bronx joined a national campaign Wednesday aimed at helping parents learn the signs of developmental disorders in children.

The National Centers for Disease Control started the campaign to look out for developmental disabilities in children called ?Learn the signs, act early.? Doctors at Montefiore Medical Center joined the campaign to teach parents the abnormal signs that can lead to autism, retardation and hearing or vision problems. Doctors say the sooner a parent catches the problem, the better off a child will be.

Doctors say when it comes to developmental disorders, there are signs parents can look for as early as three months old.
