Event Details

Help Me Grow,” “Learn the Signs. Act Early,” and “Vroom” all promote healthy child development and help lay the foundation for lifelong health and well-being.  “Help Me Grow Washington” is a movement to offer families seamless access to community services and supports. “Learn the Signs. Act Early” provides an easy to use checklist of milestones for parents and caregivers to track and support their child’s early development through age 5. “Vroom” translates brain science into fun tips and activities for parents and caregivers of children age 0 to 5.

This webinar introduces “Help Me Grow,” “Learn the Signs. Act Early,” and “Vroom” and shows how they fit together and can reinforce each other. We will hear how they are being implemented in Washington communities and let you know how you can get started with all three, if they are new to you, or deepen your impact with them if you are already using them.

Who Should attend? Providers, partners and others who work in family support, including those who work directly with families of young children, administer programs, or work on systems improvement.
