First Steps is a statewide early intervention system that provides services to children with developmental disabilities from birth to age 3 and their families. First Steps is Kentucky’s response to the federal Infant-Toddler Program. First Steps offers comprehensive services through a variety of community agencies and service disciplines and is administered by the Department for Public Health in the Cabinet for Health and Family Services.

First Steps providers deliver services that actively involve you in visits usually conducted where your child spends time (home, childcare, playground) and may differ from services provided in a therapy clinic or medical center.

First Steps providers use a coaching approach to help families and other caregivers support your child’s learning and development.
