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