What To Do Right Away

Early Steps provides early intervention services for children with Down syndrome. The main number is 561-881-2822 or you can reach the intake/referral line directly at 561-882-6426.

All children living in Palm Beach County with the “established condition” of Down syndrome are eligible to receive early intervention services. Because research shows that children with Down syndrome benefit from early intervention services, you should contact Early Steps as soon as possible.

After Early Steps does an assessment of your child, they will provide  you with services such as speech or oral motor therapy,

physical therapy  and occupational therapy  and a developmental specialist.    For most children between birth and three, the therapists come to the family home or daycare.  Your child will have one primary service provider who oversees all of your services.
