For Early Care and Education Providers

Help Me Grow SF Inclusion Specialists work with early care and education providers to support children at their sites to implement a whole classroom, inclusive approach to early intervention. This collaborative planning process leads to the review and confirmation of screening results and the subsequent drafting and implementation of child support plans and other interventions at a classroom level.

HMG Inclusion Specialists also make connections to other Help Me Grow team members for additional family support, referral navigation, and linkage to longer-term early intervention service pathways.

The HMG Developmental Screening Manager provides training and support for universal developmental screening practices, such as the ASQ-3 and ASQ-SE, to help ensure that all young children in early care and educational settings have timely access to screenings before kindergarten.

The HMG Family Engagement Manager provides training and support towards building relationships with families, communicating developmental concerns and providing assistance regarding overall family support as needed.
