Experts are focusing more money and attention on the health of young children in Connecticut in an effort to prepare them to be successful in school later on. The efforts include developmental screenings at child-care centers; home visits and information hot lines for parents; better collaboration with pediatricians; and more support for preschool staff members dealing with emotional and behavioral issues.

The idea is that if a child’s basic health needs aren’t met, he or she won’t be able to keep up with academic and social expectations in school.
