More About MDHHS and the Early On® Program

If Your Child Was Referred by DHS

If your child has experienced a traumatic situation or event, or has been identified with a medical or developmental diagnosis, MDHHS is required by federal law to make a referral to the Early On program. Our goal is to make sure your child is assessed for any possible developmental delays.

Participation in the program is voluntary, but encouraged for the wellbeing of your child.

Once a referral has been made, an Early On coordinator will contact you. The two of you will decide on a time and place to discuss services. You will work together as a team to support your child and family.
