The goal of Indiana’s First Steps System is the same as yours: To help Hoosier families make sure their infants and toddlers receive services to help them in the future.

First Steps brings together families like yours with a local network of professionals from education, health and social service agencies. Services are coordinated to give your child the widest possible array of early intervention resources. First Steps is available in every county in Indiana.
