Family Resource Center LogoThe AHM Family Resource Center received its first grant in 1996 from the Connecticut State Department of Education and has collaborated with the four regional Elementary Schools, the Middle School and the High School in various programs and services.

The philosophy of Family Resource Centers is that healthy development and good education begin with access to support services from birth.  When these services are offered in schools, services are readily accepted and accessible to families.

Developmental Screening

Do you have questions about your child’s Development? Would you like to know how you could support your child’s  development and know what they will be doing next? The FRC offers free developmental screenings in your home or in our space here at Gilead Hill!

These screenings are for children ages 4 months to 48 months, using the Ages and Stages questionnaire. Through playing with your child and speaking to you, we will look at your child’s development in the areas of language, fine and gross motor skills, social/emotional, and problem solving. We can offer feedback to parents or caregivers and suggestions to further your child’s development. The screening takes about an hour, and is confidential.

If you would like your child to be screened, or have any questions, please contact Becky Murray at 860-228-0871 or through email at BeckyM@ahmyouth.org.

Home Visits

The AHM Family Resource Center offers home visits for families living in Andover, Hebron, or Marlborough and Columbia with a child between the ages of birth and five. We utilize curriculum from the National Parents as Teachers program.

Home Visits provide families with information about child development through observation, activities, talking to parents, and play. The curriculum, which is tailored to the age and developmental stage of each child, helps parents understand their child’s behavior, what to expect next, and gives parents strategies for challenges they are facing in parenting.

Interested? For more information please call Becky Murray or Jahnna Sieckowski at 860-228-0871 or email at BeckyM@ahmyouth.org or jahnnas@ahmyouth.org.
