EarlySteps is a program that extends crucial services to families with infants and toddlers aged from birth to three years (36 months). It caters to children who either have a medical condition that is likely to cause a developmental delay or are already experiencing developmental delays. Eligibility for services is determined for children facing delays in cognitive, motor, vision, hearing, communication, social-emotional, or adaptive development.

The primary objective of EarlySteps is to enhance the family's capacity in fostering their child's development. To achieve this, a range of services is provided within the child's natural environment, which may include their home, child care facilities, or any other community setting that is typical for children in the birth to three years age range. By delivering these services in familiar surroundings, EarlySteps ensures a holistic and comprehensive approach to supporting the child's growth and well-being.
