Developmental Milestones

It is important to stay involved with your medical provider to ensure your child is reaching crucial milestones. Please visit Nevada Act Early to get information on developmental milestones and agencies who assist if you suspect a developmental delay.  If you want to see if your child’s development is on track, you can access an online developmental screening by contacting Cristal Roldan at croldan@childrenscabinet.org or by calling (775) 856-0107.

HIPPY

The Children’s Cabinet is proud to provide a program call HIPPY, but what is HIPPY? HIPPY is the Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters, an evidence-based home-visit program that improves child outcomes by supporting parents as the child’s first and most important teacher. Based on 25 years of research, this curriculum is available to youngsters starting at age 2 to age 5, leading up to kindergarten. With weekly activity packets, storybooks, and all the other materials needed for education, The Children’s Cabinet has trained community-based home visitors who support parents as they support their children. The goal is to create confidence in the family unit and broader learning experiences for the children.

Available in Washoe County, parents can contact: Lisa Boneck, HIPPY Program Coordinator at lboneck@childrenscabinet.org or 775-291-3572.
