Healthy Steps for Young Children
The Healthy Steps for Young Children program emphasizes a close relationship between health-care professionals and parents to support the physical, emotional, and intellectual development of children from birth to age 3. This national initiative was developed by pediatric department faculty at the Boston University School of Medicine, with support from the Commonwealth Fund. The Healthy Steps website provides materials (including some in Spanish) to promote child development and enhance well-child care at www.healthysteps.org.
