First Steps – Mississippi Early Intervention System
Mississippi Department of Health
First Steps is a program that matches the unique needs of infants and toddlers who have developmental delays with professional resources within the community. If you have a child up to three years old, First Steps will provide educational material and other resources to help you recognize developmental problems as early as possible. Each eligible child receives an individual assessment, with parents and other relatives providing input. Led by an assigned service coordinator, a team works with the family to develop an individualized family service plan (IFSP) to provide appropriate services to the child and family using professional resources within the community. You can arrange for an assessment by contacting your local Mississippi Department of Health office.
