One-on-one Coaching

One-on-one Coaching provides supported parenting modeling and mentoring. Through this one-on-one in-home support, families interact with Family Educators to increase their knowledge and build skills related to positive parenting and healthy attachment. As each family is different, there is no predetermined program or path that families must follow. This approach provides “in the moment” feedback and support to develop skills and confidence while meeting the needs of the family. 

Mental Health Therapist 

Norwood has an on-site mental health therapist parents can meet with for support with issues such as post-partum depression, trauma, grief, anxiety - anything that is affecting your family's health. Children aged six and under can have fun in our respite care communities while their parents attend therapy sessions. 

Health for Two 

This free program supports women through their pregnancy. Meet with one of our Norwood staff who will provide you with information for a healthy pregnancy plus milk coupons, prenatal vitamins, and bus tickets to help you visit your doctor.


Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ)


Parents who enroll at Norwood are provided an Ages and Stages Questionnaire for their child. This screening tool gives you a snapshot of where your child is in their development based on their age. The results help us identify any development delays and, most importantly, celebrate the milestones your child achieves going forward. This tool relies on you as the expert about your child.

There are two kinds of questionnaires:

  1. Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3)

    • This provides you information about your child across five developmental areas:

      • communication

      • gross motor

      • fine motor

      • problem-solving

      • personal-social

  2. Ages and Stages Questionnaire: Social Emotional (ASQ: SE-2)

    • This provides you information about your child’s social and emotional development.
