Healthy Steps for Young Children: Great resources for parents and clinicians
Established with Commonwealth Fund support, the program emphasizes a close relationship between health care professionals and parents in addressing the physical, emotional, and intellectual development of children from birth to age 3. Resources include:
Letters, which prepare parents for well-child visits and provide child-rearing advice.

Parent Prompt sheets, which provide guidance on critical developmental issues
so parents are "prompted" to ask the right question at well-child visits.

Parent Handouts, which cover a wide range of medical, developmental, and
practical issues, from baby-proofing the home to coping with toddlers' fears.

Quick Check Sheets, which provide guidance to clinicians on developmental
and behavioral issues.
