Child Development Assistance
For information and support, call or refer a family to our toll-free phone line.  The phone line is staffed by multi-lingual Care Coordinators who answer questions, offer support, and provide referrals for children’s development, learning, and behavior.  The phone line is open M - F from 9am – 5pm.



Care Coordination

When there is a concern about a child’s development, learning or behavior, care coordinators can help.  Care coordinators partner with families to problem-solve, find their best options for support, and get connected to services.  Care Coordinators also keep providers up-to-date on referrals.
Family Navigators
If a family wants more help, family navigators provide in-person care coordination.  Family Navigators are parent professionals.  They offer home visits, interpretation assistance, and peer support. They help families problem-solve, navigate systems, and enroll in services for their child and family.
Developmental Screening Program 

If a family would like to track their child’s development, the screening program is a great resource.  Families regularly receive the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) through their child’s 5th birthday.  Staff share results, provide tips, and help address concerns.  With permission, results are shared with provider(s).
