Resources It is the Connecticut state law to have a child’s blood lead level checked twice before 35 months of age. Reach out to your provider and make sure your child has been tested. We see patients in clinic with lead levels of 5ug/dL or greater. Identifying the source of lead by history or with help from the local health department is an important part of what we do. We also educate families on preventing re-exposure to sources of lead. Monitoring development and providing dietary counseling is done at each visit. In addition, we connect families with local health departments and resources that can help them. Connecticut Children’s Healthy Homes Program CT Lead Poisoning Prevention & Control Program Please review our lead poisoning prevention booklet. Lead Poisoning Information Booklet Patients with venous lead levels greater than 5ug/dL are able to make an appointment with our program without a referral.
