Help Me Grow: Tracking and Supporting Your Child’s Development
As parents, we’re not always sure our children are learning and developing as they should. Even if we can see that our child is a whiz at language or number concepts, what about motor development or social skills? Help Me Grow is a free resource to help you make sure your child’s development is on track – and to help you get the support and intervention your child needs if there are indicators that something is amiss. Learn more in Marti & Erin’s discussion with Jayne Cox-Lindsey and Marty Smith from Help Me Grow Region 11 in the Twin Cities Metro Area.
After this interview, stay tuned for a brief Relationships that Nurture feature with Cara Benoit from St. David’s Center for Child & Family Development, who will answer common questions about young children’s language development.
Have you taken your child or children for preschool screening? What did you learn and what was the experience like for you and your child? Why do you think it is so important that all young children go through preschool screening? Leave a comment below with your thoughts!
