HEALTHY DEVELOPMENT SERVICES

hds-header

The American Academy of Pediatrics, California Chapter 3 provides countywide coordination and support to the First 5 Commission of San Diego’s Healthy Development Services (HDS) project. This project provides health-oriented services to children ages 0-5 living in San Diego County, including:

  • Developmental check ups, classes, parent coaching and therapy, including Speech and Language services
  • Behavioral check ups, parent coaching and therapy
  • Parent Education Support and Empowerment through classes and information
  • Care Coordination for families engaged in HDS services
  • These services are targeted to children with mild to moderate needs, with the intent of providing help for children who otherwise would not receive the care that they need.
Services are provided by 16 organizations countywide. A regional leadership organization directs efforts within county regions. The AAP-CA3 HDS team coordinates and assists these lead organizations in their efforts to ensure that children enter school healthy and ready to learn.
