Birth to 5: Watch Me Thrive! Campaign

Several government agencies have partnered for a public outreach campaign supporting young children. Birth to 5: Watch Me Thrive! highlights the importance of universal developmental and behavioral screening. The page for families includes a screening tool to help parents keep track of a child's developmental milestones. The page also has links to:
  •  resources to learn what milestones children from 2 months to 5 years of age should be reaching,
  • tips on what you should do if you're concerned,
  • simple learning activities to incorporate into your child's routine,
  • tips and resources on positive parenting to promote healthy child development.
This page has links to other resources, like early intervention programs,  that can help families who have concerns with their child's development. There are additional  resources for various child care providers, including behavioral health, child welfare, primary care, educators, and homeless shelters.
