Pathfinder Health

Pathfinder Health is an app designed by pediatricians for parents. We provide evidence-based clinical tools needed to support children's development age 0-5.


With our simple and easy-to-use interface, we make it easy for parents (or any other caregiver) to track their children’s development in real-time. 

The insights and evidence they gain through the Pathfinder app also facilitate communication with their physician, contributing to earlier diagnoses. 

We also provide step-by-step guidance on how parents can best interact with their children based on their current stage of development as well as links to additional information, evidence-based developmental activities, articles, parenting tips, and early intervention services in their area so they can get the help their children might need.


Together, we can help parents get from concern to care in as little as 8 weeks, not years.
