Children 1st

Connecting Children with the Care They Need

Children 1st is the “single point of entry” for health referrals for children up to age five. The Children 1st team carefully reviews each referral, identifies which screenings the child requires, and sets appointments for qualified therapists and care coordinators to meet with the child and his or her family.

Once the child has been screened, the Children 1st team identifies any developmental, medical and/or socio-environmental conditions that may put him or her at risk for poor health or developmental outcomes. Children are then connected with the public health programs that best meet their needs.

Refer a Child for a Free Health Screening

Anyone can make a referral for any child up to age five to receive a free health or developmental screening. Just fill out, save and submit our Screening Referral Form.
