Pediatric Practice Enhancement Project

Mission

To provide a coordinated system of care and medical home enhancement for children and youth with special healthcare needs including children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

What we do

  • Serve low-income expectant mothers and families with infants in Central Falls, Pawtucket, Providence, and Woonsocket.
  • Provide culturally-competent, family-centered services. Our Parents Educators are committed to providing services that embrace and celebrate the richness of all cultures within families. While acknowledging that families have challenges, Parent Educators work with the strengths of each family to manage those challenges.
  • Link families with medical homes. During prenatal visits, Parent Educators can link expectant mothers with a medical home for their prenatal care. After the birth of a child, Parent Educators work with parents to make sure the child is receiving his or her well-child visits and is up-to-date on hearing, vision, and developmental screenings andimmunizations.
  • Help parents be their child's first and most influential teacher.
