Programs / Early Childhood Programs / Healthy Steps
Healthy steps offers a range of services to children ages 0-5 in the North Region of Miami-Dade County. These services include home visists with developmental specialists, well-child medical care, a parent telephone information line, child development screenings, written materials, age-appropriate books, parent support groups, screening for parental depression and referrals to other services, as needed. Healthy Steps uses a team approach to primary health care for young children. The team includes a professional staff member, called a Healthy Steps Specialist, whose background in child development, nursing or social work is complemented by Healthy Steps training, and who provides a link between the family and the pediatrician.
