Every child develops at their own pace. Signs of healthy development are called “milestones.” Milestones are things like walking, talking, and playing with toys. Children reach milestones at different times.
Developmental screenings are simple tools that help show how a child is developing. They are easy for a parent, caregiver, or doctor to complete. Help Me Grow offers Inland Empire families free screenings.
Early intervention happens before a child reaches kindergarten.
As many as 25% of children 0-5 are at risk for developmental delays.* Help Me Grow Inland Empire works with community partners to identify and support developmental delays early. As part of the national Help Me Grow network, we're working to support the healthy development of the nearly 400,000 children ages 0-5 living in the Inland Empire.
