Getting started with First Steps is an easy process that begins with a phone call to the Systems Point of Entry (SPOE) office 1 (800) 387-7837 or by completing the online referral form. Once a referral is received, a Service Coordinator will contact the family within two business days.
At that time, he/she will talk to the family about the First Steps program and the developmental concerns they may have for their child. He/she will schedule our Assessment Team (AT) to conduct an assessment at no cost to the family in the child’s home at a time convenient for the family.
The Assessment Team, which consists of trained early intervention therapists, will evaluate the child in all developmental areas to determine whether First Steps services are warranted.
