Bilingual Navigator, Get Ready to GROW

WHAT I DO AT CHILDREN'S INSTITUTE

  • Screen children ages 12 to 60 months for vision, hearing, dental, BMI, speech & language, motor skills, and social-emotional development. These developmental screenings are completed at childcare and community-based organizations, community events, and at Children’s Institute.
  • Review a child’s screening results with the organization’s designated Get Ready to GROW liaison when a child’s referred for further evaluation. Collaborate with the liaison to ensure all further evaluations are completed.
  • Work directly with the child’s caregiver when needed, to ensure that further evaluations for those children being referred have been completed - this includes connecting caregivers to the appropriate service providers and assisting them with the GROW Parent Portal.
