Keywords:early childhood, child development, targeted universalism, population health, early detection, early intervention, system of care, prevention, developmental promotion
Many families with young children in the United States struggle to access the services and care they need to thrive, signaling a need for a comprehensive, coordinated, effective system of developmental promotion, early identification of concern and need, and linkage to resources. The Help Me Grow (HMG) Model is an innovative solution that provides an early childhood system of care and utilizes targeted universalism as a framework to advance equity. Together, the HMG Model and targeted universalism provide a coordinated and universal system with targeted support for vulnerable populations and can prevent young children from “slipping through the cracks.”
