GROW Rochester

Free Quick Health Checks for Success

GROW Rochester was established in 2014 to provide comprehensive health and developmental screenings and follow-up for three-year old children in Rochester, New York.  Since its inception, GROW has screened over 4,400, 3-year-old children. Screenings, or quick checks, are completed in the following areas with standardized procedures, tools, and parent questionnaires: Vision, Hearing, Dental, Height and Weight, Speech and Language, Social-Emotional, Thinking and Learning, and Motor Development. Navigators provide support and follow-up assistance to families, caretakers, and programs to access further evaluation, resources, and services as needed. In 2019, GROW Rochester adopted the Help Me Grow model to enhance its cross-sector partnerships and community impact.
