FOUNDATIONS EARLY CHILDHOOD HEALTH SPECIALIST

Local partnership and systems-building efforts are necessary to give children equitable access to health and developmental screenings so that they can be healthy and well in the early years and beyond. This will be accomplished by providing Early Childhood Health Specialist services at the child, classroom, program, and community levels and in partnership with parents, teachers, center director(s), and Child Care Health Consultants (CCHCs). Ultimately, this coordinated work will seek to achieve three overarching goals: 1) educate Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) providers and the greater community on the impact of early dental and health screenings on school and behavioral success; 2) create conduits for CCHSs to conduct annual health screenings at each UPK site; and 3) build and strengthen partnerships between UPK providers and primary care.
