Help Me Grow
Some babies and young children need extra help to learn and grow.
While all young children grow and change at their own rate, some children experience delays in their development. Special health conditions may affect children's development, too. Accessing early intervention services as early as possible will ensure the best developmental outcomes for these children.
Eligible children can receive services in their home, child care setting or school. These services are free to eligible families, regardless of income or immigrant status. After a referral is made to Help Me Grow, infant and toddler intervention staff will set up an appointment with the family to determine if the child is eligible for services through an evaluation process. Early childhood specialists will work with eligible children and families to plan the services and supports they need.
Help Me Grow is an interagency effort with the Minnesota Departments of Education, Health and Human Services.
