The early years of a child’s life are very important for his or her health and development. Healthy development means that children of all abilities, including those with special health care needs, are able to grow up where their social, emotional and educational needs are met. Proper nutrition, exercise, and rest also can make a big difference. It is important to note that not all children develop at the same pace as other children their age. If you have a concern about your child’s development please to not hesitate to contact 2-1-1 and ask to speak with Help Me Grow.
