Sometimes children need a little extra help.
Help Me Grow offers special services to children with a diagnosed medical condition or developmental delay.
This service is provided by the Lawrence County Board of Developmental Disabilities. Their Service Coordinators
can arrange a comprehensive evaluation to determine if children need help seeing, hearing, talking, thinking, playing, or
moving. These evaluations are at no cost to you, and we can help connect you with the services your child needs.
The first three years of a child’s life are the building blocks
for learning and development. Your child’s education begins before he or she is born. Being a parent is
probably the most important job you will ever have and sometimes it can be difficult.
