Connecticut families with children 0-5 years old can download Sparkler’s mobile app for free to check in on their children’s development, learn through play, and tap into a network of support from 211 Child Development and Help Me Grow. Sparkler is available in English and Español (Spanish). It offers families tools to monitor children’s social-emotional, cognitive, communication, and physical development, including the Ages & Stages Questionnaires®, as well as suggestions for play-based learning activities to support children’s development.


You can download Sparkler from the Google Play Store if you have an Android phone or tablet or from the Apple App Store if you use an iPhone or iPad.


Open the app and tap "Create a New Account." Enter the Sparkler access code CT on the first step of registration to access developmental screening and to access Connecticut-specific resources and support. Answer the questions to create an account for yourself and a profile for your child. You must enter your child's birthday correctly because Sparkler assigns screenings and other content based on your child's age.
