Help Me Grow is a system of coordination that will be implemented to help ensure families are connected to the early intervention services their children need to thrive.

The long- term objectives of this system are to:

  • Build a centralized care coordination and referral telephone service with our system partner 211
  • Support universal developmental screening and referral efforts in pediatric care settings
  • Expand early identification efforts in preschool and early education sites
  • Pilot mid-level developmental assessment to provide interventions for children with mild-to-moderate developmental concerns and delays
  • Launch social marketing efforts that highlight the importance of regular developmental screening and how to respond if a developmental delay is identified
  • Implement a family and provider website to increase knowledge of child development and awareness of developmental services
  • Expand the availability and increase use of online developmental screenings
