Frequently Asked Questions

What is the benefit of using Cognoa?

With developmental delays affecting 1 in 6 U.S. children, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends all kids undergo a developmental screening numerous times. Cognoa's app provides a free and accurate developmental screening that you can complete in minutes from the privacy and comfort of your home. This may help you get answers about your child's development and take the appropriate steps months or even years earlier than without Cognoa.


Who is Cognoa for?

Cognoa is designed to evaluate risk for developmental delay in children ages 18 months to 7 years. If you are concerned about your child’s development or simply want peace of mind that everything is on track, you can use Cognoa at various milestones.


Is Cognoa accurate?

Cognoa’s Harvard-developed technology was validated using data from over 10,000 children, and was demonstrated to be more accurate than other existing screening methods. Our screening is based on over five years of clinical research and validation studies led by Dennis Wall, PhD at prominent institutions including Harvard Medical School and Stanford Medical School.


Why should I upload videos?

With two short videos of your child, Cognoa can provide you with a personalized, in-depth evaluation from the videos recorded in the comfort, convenience, and privacy of your home. The video portion of the evaluation is important because it allows us to look and listen to your child. With the detailed feedback you can learn what your child does well and find areas where you can help your child improve.


Is Cognoa secure?

Any information you provide to Cognoa is secured and encrypted in compliance with HIPAA regulations. More information is available in our Privacy Policy.


How does Cognoa work with pediatricians?

Although Cognoa does not provide a diagnosis, we provide a detailed evaluation of your child’s play, communication, and social skills that you can share with your pediatrician in order to make the best decisions about your child’s care.
