Help Me Grow

The Help Me Grow Campaign is a statewide public awareness and outreach campaign designed to increase awareness of the need for universal developmental screening and connecting children who are at-risk to supports and services. 

By increasing the number of children screened annually, we hope to increase the number of children who get the help they need as early as possible.
