Children birth to five may be eligible for Help Me Grow A child's early years often bring wonder and excitement for families! Children grow and change rapidly from birth to kindergarten entrance, and are learning every day. Some babies and young children need extra help to learn and grow As parents watch their child grow and develop, they may notice when their child smiles, rolls over, sits up, walks, plays, coos, cries and talks. While all young children grow and change at their own rate, some children experience delays in their develop- ment. Special health conditions may affect children's development, too. Be- cause parents know their child the best, they may be the first to notice that their child is developing differently than other babies or young children. Free help is available Minnesota children from birth to five-years-old, who are eligible for Help Me Grow, can receive services in their home, child care setting or school. These services are free to eligible fam- ilies regardless of income or immigrant status. Assistance from experts Early childhood specialists will work with eligible children and fami- lies to plan the services and supports they need. These may include; special instruction and other services, includ- ing speech, physical and occupational therapy; ways that a family can support their child's development at home; and connections to community services and programs. Early childhood specialists can help find other community re- sources and early childhood programs for those children not eligible for Help Me Grow. Visit for more information on how young children develop plus ideas to help your child learn and grow. Call 1-866-693 GROW (4769) or your local school if you have questions about your child's development or if you think your child might need extra help to learn. / Commencement May 7 at SMSU Seven hundred and five bachelor's, master's and associate degree candidates are scheduled to graduate May 7 from Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall.
