Colorado’s Assuring Better Child Health and Development (ABCD) project provides training and technical assistance to communities, pediatric health care providers, child care providers and families to help build and improve systems to support the identification of children who may have developmental delays as early as possible. ABCD advocates that once children with potential delays are identified, they are successfully connected with the services and resources they need as soon as possible. ABCD applies content expertise regarding best practices and facilitating conversations between primary care practices and communities to further the success of their work.

As ABCD continues to grow, its Board of Directors (BOD) will play an increasing essential role in determining the goals and objectives and solidifying the strength of our organization. 

This document is intended to highlight the skills and abilities that we are looking for in individuals who will participate on our Board. 

ABCD Mission: To align and mobilize pediatric and community partners to improve early childhood developmental outcomes.
