Understanding your Child's Development
As you watch your child grow, you may become concerned about your child’s development. While all young children grow and change at their own rate, sometimes you may have concerns that your child is developing differently than other children the same age as your child.
If you are not the parent, you may make a referral without parent consent for children birth to kindergarten age. We encourage you to speak with the family about this referral. The local education agency will contact the family for their permission to proceed with the referral and they may accept or decline.
If you have any concerns about your child's growth and development, please talk to your child's health care provider or call 1-866-693-GROW to talk to a professional and find out ways in which you can get connected to various resources in Minnesota.
