Since funding for schools in Wyoming is based on "Average Daily Membership," commonly referred to as ADM, school officials carefully monitor enrollments and plan ap- propriately for funding and student needs. Under Wyoming law, ifa student is absent more than 10 days in a row without no- tice, the student is removed from the enrollment figures and funding to the school is decreased accordingly.

By then, a lot of learning may have already been missed. In fact, 90% of brain development occurs in the first few years. That's why tracking a child's developmental process is an essential part of early childhood. The earlier delays are addressed, the more opportunity exists for increased growth and independence. Delaying intervention will likely result in the need for more costly and less effective interventions in the future. A developmental screening can prepare your child for school and improve their life forever. All developmental services are free regardless of income. The only thing you cannot afford to do is wait.
