Your Child’s Development

Why Help Me Grow?

While every child is unique, children develop in certain, predictable ways, called developmental milestones. Your child’s health care provider and early childhood experts will use screening information to keep tabs on how your child is progressing and determine if he/she is reaching the milestones. It’s proven that getting your child help early makes all the difference in the world.
