Saint Paul and North Suburban Help Me Grow helps families develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to meet the unique needs of their children.
St. Paul and North Suburban Help Me Grow (formerly known as Early Childhood Information and Referral of Ramsey County) is the “central intake” office for children age birth-5 when there is a concern regarding their development. Once your child is referred to our office a determination will be made for further evaluation by the appropriate school district. The early intervention evaluation team will assess your child as necessary to determine eligibility for early intervention services.
If your child is eligible for early intervention services, early childhood specialists will work with you to plan the services and supports that would be appropriate for your child and family. These core services may include:
- Determining eligibility
(Referral,Screening,Evaluation and Assessment)
- Specialized Instruction
- Parent Training
- Related Services
- Service Coordination
If your child is not eligible for early intervention services, your family may be referred to other community (public or private) agencies for further assistance/support.
