About

The Heuser Early Intervention Program provides home-based services for children, birth to age three, through the Kentucky and Indiana First Steps programs.

What Is First Steps?

First Steps programs are statewide early intervention systems that provide services to children with developmental disabilities from birth to age three and their families in response to the federal Infant-Toddler Program. First Steps programs offer comprehensive services through a variety of community agencies and service disciplines.
