Help Me Grow

The Help Me Grow/Child Find Program is available free of charge to children starting at birth. If parents, caregivers, family members or physicians have any concern about any area of development for a child they can call the program. A developmental screen is then done by Duluth Public School staff. The screen looks at all areas of development to determine if a child is developing at age expectations. If the child is not, the school staff can help the parents or care givers determine how to best meet the child's needs. Services that are available if a child is eligible may include special instruction, speech, physical or occupational therapy, school social work and nurse time. This program is offered year round for children under the age of three. It can be provided in the home, child care setting or community setting. Call 336-8744
