Community-Based Care

Watch Me Grow / First 5 San Mateo  

RAPID DEVELOPMENTAL EVALUATION: Developmental-behavioral pediatricians team with general pediatricians in the San Mateo Medical Center to evaluate children who fail developmental screening or show obvious developmental delays. The priority in the evaluation is to identify appropriate community-based resources and services to begin treatment. The program is funded by First 5 San Mateo County.

INTERAGENCY COLLABORATIVE: We meet with more than 15 agencies and services from San Mateo County to coordinate care for children with complex medical and psycho-social issues. Parents consent for the discussion. Professionals share their opinions, and the resulting plan is designed to overcome barriers to the child’s development and/or family’s wellbeing. This program is funded by First 5 San Mateo County.
