"Learn the Signs, Act Early" Outreach Work

Develops and expands on the MN Help Me Grow and the Institute's Act Early work in culturally and linguistically diverse communities. Act Early is building a national network of agencies, organizations, and professionals (called ambassadors) that utilize the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC's) "Learn the Signs, Act Early" message. The project presents the opportunity for significant and sustained impact within culturally diverse communities to increase early screening of neurodevelopmental disabilities. While this project will provide the initial training and materials, the Act Early/MN Help Me Grow delegates within the community organizations will gain the skills to carry the message and outreach forward beyond the funding cycle of this grant.
