About Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) Program

The Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) is a preventive program that delivers periodic health assessments and services to low income children and youth in California. CHDP provides care coordination to assist families with medical appointment scheduling, transportation, and access to diagnostic and treatment services. Health assessments are provided by enrolled private physicians, local health departments, community clinics, managed care plans, and some local school districts.

CHDP offers comprehensive health assessment services at no cost including:

  • Health and developmental history
  • Complete physical examination
  • Oral health/dental assessment
  • Nutritional assessment
  • Behavioral assessment
  • Immunizations as appropriate for age
  • Vision screening
  • Hearing screening
  • Screening tests for anemia, blood lead, tuberculosis, urine abnormalities, sexually transmitted diseases, and other problems as needed
  • Health education and anticipatory guidance

CHDP is administered and funded by the State Department of Health Services and operated by the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services. For further information, the Long Beach CHDP Administration office may be reached at (562) 570-7980.
