Most readers of my blog have probably learned by now that I am a huge supporter of early intervention services. I recently learned of a great resource for parents and caregivers of children age birth through five in Orange County, California who may suspect their child has developmental difficulties. The service is called Help Me Grow Orange County (www.helpmegrowoc.org) and is a toll free number (1-866-GROW-025) that provides information and support for gaining access to early intervention services.
This is a wonderful resource for families, educators, or health care providers who may not be sure how to access early intervention services in Orange County. Hopefully other areas of the county also have similar support services available (feel free to leave information in the comments if you know of a similar service in your area).
