Developed in 1994, Healthy Steps for Young Children (Healthy Steps) is a program in pediatric and family practices that focuses on the first three years of life. A child development specialist provides parents with information and services that are not typically available to them. During this project, Healthy Steps staff established the program at new sites and continued to support existing sites while working to institutionalize the program.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) supported earlier stages of Healthy Steps. See Program Results.
