Help Me Grow

The goal of Help Me Grow Florida (HMG) is to promote healthy development for every child in Florida. It is a comprehensive and integrated statewide system designed to address the need for early identification of developmental and/or behavioral concerns, and then to link children and their families to community-based developmental and behavioral services and supports. It is free for families.

Physician Champion for Help Me Grow

“Help Me Grow Brevard really helps families who are worried about child development. After the screenings, the care coordinator goes over the results thoroughly with parents, makes referrals and helps them navigate the system. I refer families regularly and appreciate the support this gives my patients.”

Physician Champion for Help Me Grow

“At Brevard Health Alliance, we want to offer our families as much support as possible. Through our growing partnership with Help Me Grow Brevard, we offer another option for ensuring healthy child development. As chief of pediatrics at BHA, I and other pediatricians on staff increasingly refer parents to Help Me Grow.”

Dr. Wendy Lockhart
