First Steps is a family
centered early intervention program for infants and toddlers from birth to
age three who may not be doing what they should for their age or have a
medical condition that would likely lead to developmental delays.
To support families in their natural care giving roles, First Steps brings
families together with health, education, and social service professionals
to address the developmental needs of the children that are determined to be
in need of therapy services. These voluntary services are typically offered
in the family's home or other natural environment.
Central Indiana First Steps
