Children 1st – Georgia Department of Public Health – Early Intervention and Identification Program – GEORGIA
The mission of Children 1st is to identify children who are at risk for poor health and developmental outcomes, so that needed interventions can be made to ensure the optimal health and development of the child.
The Overview of Children 1st
Children 1st is the “Single Point of Entry” to a statewide collaborative system of public health and other prevention based programs and services. This system helps parents provide their young children with a healthy start in life. It allows at-risk children to be identified early and gives them a chance to grow up healthy and ready for school. Participation is voluntary and there are no financial requirements for enrollment into the program. Children 1st collaborates with local hospitals, pediatricians and other health care providers, schools, community-based organizations, and other agencies to ensure healthy development of newborns and young children.
