Babies and toddlers grow and learn at their own rate. Some children need extra help to grow up healthy and to learn skills such as sitting, walking, or talking. The Olmsted County Follow Along Program can help you to find out if your child needs additional help.
What is the Follow Along Program?
It is a program at no cost to you to help you learn about your child’s health and development. The program helps you find out if your child is hearing, moving, seeing, playing, talking, learning, growing, and acting normally as your child reaches different ages.
Who is eligible?
Families in Olmsted County who have children newborn to three years old.
How does the program work?
A Follow Along nurse may visit with you to tell you more about the program and find out more about your child. You will be asked to sign a permission form.
How do I sign up?
Contact the Olmsted County Follow Along Program at Olmsted County Public Health Services. Parents may also enroll their child by requesting a free home visit from a nurse.
