Birth to Five Helpline Question Submission

*please note you will leave the FTF Site to submit your question - via the Birth To Five / Southwest Human Development website

For questions about dealing with tantrums, or anything else, ask the Birth to Five Helpline. Call toll-free or submit a question via their website and talk to child development specialists—it’s free.

The Birth to Five Helpline is available for all families with young children looking for the latest child development information from experts in the field. Professionals may also take advantage of this free service.

Staffed by early childhood development specialists, registered nurses, disabilities specialists, early literacy specialists, and mental health counselors, the Helpline provides a toll-free number for all Arizona families with young children, and parents-to-be, to call with questions or concerns about their infants, toddlers and preschoolers. 

Families may have used their Arizona Parent Kit for information and resources about their child’s development and health but may have additional questions or need some more help.

To provide direct support to answer a family’s specific questions, First Things First is investing $90,000 annually with Southwest Human Development, Inc. to make this service available for all Arizona families of children ages birth through five years.  

This program is operated by Southwest Human Development, Inc.
