The Division of Public Health, in partnership with Delaware 211 and other state and community organizations, offers the Help Me Grow program to help meet developmental milestones between birth to age 8.

Help Me Grow is a comprehensive and coordinated statewide system for the early identification and referral of children at risk for developmental and behavioral challenges. The program helps children and their families find community-based programs and services to enhance the child’s behavior, learning and development.

Specially trained Help Me Grow specialists will assist callers to navigate services in their area and will be able to use early detection screenings to identify potential developmental delays and guide parents, educators and providers to resources that address these concerns.

The Help Me Grow system has served more than 7,800 Delaware children since its inception in 2012.
