If your child is between 9 and 18 months, we invite you to participate in our research and have your child screened with the Smart ESAC. When you complete an initial screening, we’ll give you a free membership in the Social Communication Growth Charts.

How can you screen for a communication delay in a child who can’t talk yet?

  • Infants and toddlers can be screened for skills that develop before children learn to talk, such as gestures, sounds, and actions with objects used in play.
  • The Smart Early Screening for Autism and Communication Disorders (Smart ESAC) is a new online screening tool designed as a universal screen based on parent report.
  • You will view a brief video before screening that explains the Smart ESAC and our Parent Portal.

    • Screening reports & invitations to rescreen every 3-6 months.
    • Links to resources in our Seamless Path for Families tailored to screening results.
    • If your child’s screening result shows a risk for autism, you will be invited to Autism Navigator courses and tools.
