Upstate KIDS hopes to learn more about the easiest way for moms to report their child’s vaccination history to public health researchers. You can help us reach this goal by sending in a recent copy of your child’s vaccination history, which most pediatrician offices will provide you at no cost. If you would like, we can send you a postage paid envelope you can use to mail us a copy of your child’s vaccination history. Please message us, call us at 1-888-870-0247 or email us at email@example.com if you would like us to send you a prepaid mailing envelope. You can also fax us your child’s vaccination history at 518-402-4823. Thank you very much for helping us improve child health!
Infant Development Screening Program
The Upstate KIDS (USK) Infant Development Screening Program is helping families across New York State track their baby's growth and development in the first three years of life. The objective of Upstate KIDS is to identify patterns in children's growth and development to achieve a better understanding of the causes of developmental differences in all children.
Families are contacted every few months for the first three years of their child's life. All Upstate KIDS documents can be completed at home by families and returned in the mail, in postage paid envelopes we provide. Screening tools will be completed to document each participating child's growth and developmental milestones (such as: sitting up, crawling, walking). Information provided to Upstate KIDS will be used to identify problems or setbacks in a child's development. Families will be provided quality care and services if developmental delays are found.
