What are the 1, 2, 3, Grow Animated Caregiver Stories?
1, 2, 3, Grow !” is a TV program about early childhood development available on YouTube and cable television stations across Massachusetts for families of young children from a variety of cultures.
The “1, 2, 3, Grow! Animated Caregiver Stories” are short (3-minute) videos that engage providers on how to incorporate cultural sensitivity into their practices. The three videos share the perspectives of families from different cultures about how their families and communities may or may not have supported their needs following their children’s diagnoses of a developmental disability.

Animated Caregiver Stories – parents, providers, students, community organizations – about families’ cultural experiences following the diagnoses of their children with developmental disabilities.
