ABCD's Diversity & Inclusion Declaration:
Assuring Better Child Health and Development stands by our vision that all Colorado’s children reach their maximum developmental potential. We celebrate and encourage differences in race, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, gender identity, and perspective. We believe in serving as visible allies who put these values into practice. Therefore, we are intentionally growing our understanding and tangible support of the historically disenfranchised, underrepresented, and underserved.
Giving All Colorado Children an Equal Opportunity to Thrive.
With support from ABCD, Colorado has become a leader in providing developmental screenings, yet half of Colorado children still go without those vital services.
ABCD is committed to closing the gap. Since 2006, we've increased the number of primary care practices that screen and refer children by 1,200%.
In partnership with communities and frontline providers, we're making it easier for families to access support in those early years, when it matters most.
Read stories from our partners, and from the families whose children are thriving, thanks to the early identification and intervention services they received.
