About ABCD

Assuring Better Child Health and Development (ABCD), a project of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center, is a statewide nonprofit focused on improving the lives of Colorado children through early identification of developmental needs. We educate, equip and partner with the frontline primary care, early learning and community agencies who serve children and families. Through our trainings, customized consultation, and systems building, we empower these agencies to bring the lifelong benefits of early identification and intervention to Colorado children. Across all our work, ABCD believes that family engagement is central to ensuring equal opportunities for all Colorado children to thrive.

As one of our core programs, ABCD is the designated Colorado State Intermediary for HealthySteps (HS). HS is an evidence-based approach to providing developmental support, behavioral health, and resources to young children (0-3 years) during well-child health-care visits. As the State Intermediary, ABCD supports the financial sustainability of HS sites, monitors model fidelity, provides professional development to HS specialists, maintains and reports HS data, liaises between Colorado HS sites and the national office (ZERO TO THREE), and plays a crucial role in expanding HS in Colorado.
