SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2015) - Cognoa, the healthcare company changing how parents assess and support their child's development, announces today its Parent Groups feature, allowing its network of 100,000 parents to discover other families experiencing the same situations or challenges. Parents have access to answers to questions they can submit about their child's behavior for free and can view answers to top questions asked by other parents like them on topics such as eating and digestion, sleep, motor and sensory, playtime, speech and language, socialization and more.

"Whether a child is gifted for their age or displaying concerning behaviors, it's not always easy for parents to get quick answers about their child's behavior or to understand if they should be doing something differently," said Brent Vaughan, CEO of Cognoa. "In Cognoa's Parent Groups, we bring together thousands of parents who share similar concerns about everything from eating habits to how their child is socializing with other children. Every parent has questions about their child's development, and we want to offer those parents peace of mind and help them take more active steps to support their child's development."

Cognoa provides parents with many tools to get the answers they need. Through Cognoa's online platform and app, families can complete a short questionnaire to tell them if their child's development is on track within five minutes. Families receive detailed feedback about important areas of their child's development, including next steps to take. Parents can also privately submit short videos of their child's behavior at home to Cognoa experts for more advice.

"The process to see specialists is often long and stressful for concerned parents. Offering parents the ability to connect with an expert, quickly and for free, helps them better determine what is a real concern," said Vaughan. "We hear from parents every day that Cognoa's answers provide peace of mind and that seeing the questions from thousands of other parents like them, helps them know that they are not alone."
