Stories from our Healthy Beginnings families

The Rodrigues Family

I brought my daughter to a screening because she was struggling with her numbers and letters. She is a smart girl, but no matter how much we worked with her at home she didn’t seem to be able to grasp the concepts. When we reached the screening we were able to rule out issues with her vision, and connected with an expert who referred us to a specialized preschool. They provided amazing support, and because of that we found our my daughter was struggling with dyslexia. Because Healthy beginnings was there to connect us, my little girl is now thriving in school, receiving the specialized support she needs.

The Pratt Family

I brought my 4 month old to a screening at Healthy Beginnings and was so impressed by the process. I was able to speak with experts about her development, and learned so much about what to expect as she grew. It was great to experience how she interacted with others and the information I gathered was invaluable. Thank you, Healthy Beginnings!

The Jacobs Family

I brought my son Leon to a screening with Healthy Beginnings21 years ago when I was concerned about his speech. They did a speech assessment and the speech pathologist agreed, Leon needed additional services to address the delay. They connected us with the necessary resources, and it made all the difference in his academic career. Today he is 25 and pursuing a graduate degree in Medicine. Thank you Healthy Beginnings for helping to ensure my son received the help he needed to succeed.

Healthy Beginnings’ friendly and knowledgeable staff and volunteers were amazing with my three-month-old daughter. Their professionalism, expertise and kindness are such an asset to our community. I trust their knowledge and resources to help guide us as we raise our daughter.

Preschool Provider

Healthy Beginnings staff visited my small preschool, and the casual experience was wonderful! They have the knowledge and resources to point parents in the right direction if any other early intervention is encouraged. I highly recommend this early learning opportunity to all quality preschools and childcare programs who are committed to fostering a “Healthy Beginning” for the children they teach and care for.
