First Steps services are provided from birth to their 3rd birthday. The program is designed to meet the needs of infants and toddlers with, or at risk for, developmental delays, regardless of income.
Learning activities provided by our therapists will be fun and play-based, while focused toward the goals that you have set for your child to achieve. We will support and coach you, as parents/caregivers, to create teachable moments in daily activities. It is amazing how much you can teach a child at mealtime, at the grocery store, preparing for bed, etc. .
