For more than 23 years, Healthy Beginnings has provided critical
health and developmental screenings for the children of Central Oregon.
Our goal is to help children be ready to learn and thrive at school.
Our screenings are provided FREE TO ANY CHILD, up to age five.
Nearly 40% of children enter kindergarten
with a barrier to success.
Timely health and developmental screenings help to identify these barriers and connect families to life-changing services.
ABOUT HEALTHY BEGININGS
At a Healthy Beginnings screening, families and young children are welcomed into a supportive, friendly environment featuring stations devoted to areas of focus including: hearing, vision, development, behavior, dental, speech, nutrition, and more. Each screening area has activities and opportunities to respectfully engage with the child and family through play, conversation, and connection. Referral and continued follow up services are provided to families to ensure connections are made with any needed services.
We are grateful to the passionate and dedicated staff and volunteers that support the mission of Healthy Beginnings. Our volunteers include retired pediatricians, speech pathologists, dental professionals, behaviorists, licensed clinical social workers, nurses, and other professionals dedicated to caring for the children in our community.
