The Easterseals Joliet Region Jumpstart Home Visiting Program is an educational program for qualified families expecting and those who have children age 0-3 in Grundy County. We provide developmental screenings, parenting enrichment, support, and much more. We know that life with kids can be hectic and children respond better in a familiar environment. Because of this, visits take place in the comfort of your home and are planned around your schedule.
What do visits look like?
Activities. Your Home Visitor will share a developmentally appropriate activity for you and your child to do together. We will help you understand what areas of development your child is working on and share activities that encourage that development.
Development. Unsure what your child will do next? Have questions about sleeping or brain development? We’ll bring information on important topics that will help you understand your child’s development.
Family Well-being. Families are systems–when one part changes, it affects the whole system. We check in to see how things are going for your family every visit. If you need extra support or services, we’ll help you find them!
Families interested in participating in Jumpstart can contact Dana or Sheree by phone at 815-416-6410. The office is located inside the We Care Building at 530 Bedford Road in Morris. More information can also be found online at www.parentasexpert.com and #jumpstarteasterseals.
