First 5, San Diego’s Healthy Development Services (HDS) program, prepares children for success by identifying mild to moderate developmental and behavioral delays during the critical first five years of life and provides families with the appropriate services, treatment, and resources. HDS families receive coordinated services, at no cost to them, through an integrated system of community providers before delays become more difficult and expensive to address.
