Early Intervention, Early Care and Education

Building a brighter future for children of all abilities

Early identification and treatment of disabilities and delays is crucial to help infants and children achieve their potential. At the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center, a variety of Early Intervention services build the foundation for a brighter future for youngsters identified with (or at risk for) disabilities. For more details on the Early Intervention services listed below, contact the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center.

First Steps

  • The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center is a provider for Vanderburgh County First Steps, an Indiana program for children from birth to 3 who experience delays in some area of development. Physical, occupational, and speech therapies are among the services provided in the child's natural environment at home or in preschool.
