Early Intervention

Research shows that children’s earliest experiences play a critical role in brain development

Babies’ brains require stable, caring and interactive relationships with adults. Positive learning experiences begin at home, but can also be provided in a variety of environments.

When developmental delays or disabilities are identified early, families and Early Steps service providers can work together to help children thrive. A balanced approach to social, emotional, cognitive and language development will best prepare children for success in school and later in the workplace and community.
