BUTLER, PA –The Cranberry Afternoon Rotary donated $500 in September to support Lifesteps’ Child Check program, a FREE program for families throughout several local counties. 
 
Lifesteps’ Child Check program provides free developmental screenings for children birth to age 5 and Autism screenings for children beginning at 18-months. Developmental Specialists use nationally designed tools to examine keys areas in a child’s development such as playing, talking, seeing, hearing, moving, thinking, and social skills. These screenings provide families with the ability to secure necessary resources if developmental delays are detected.
 
For over 30 years, Child Check has provided thousands of families with information about their child’s developmental progress. Lifesteps, along with supporters like the Cranberry Afternoon Rotary, believes early detection and intervention can have a profound effect on a child’s ability to reach their fullest potential.
 
The Cranberry Afternoon Rotary club is part of the Rotary International, a group of over 35,000 clubs dedicated to creating positive and lasting change in their communities and abroad. For over 110 the rotary has lived by the motto “Service Above Self” and has been based on a foundation of service, integrity, fellowship, diversity and leadership while working to improve some of the words toughest issues.
