Advantages for Children with Disabilities

First Steps Nashville provides individualized learning for each Child; regardless of ability or condition, your child will find a home at First Steps.  We welcome children with unique learning needs as well as those with diagnosed conditions like autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, or feeding difficulty. Based on development assessments, we create an individualized learning program that may include an IEP or IFSP to help your child achieve his or her full potential.

First Steps also offers child-specific care related to health and medical conditions including on-site nursing and therapy. Our staff is specially trained to work with diverse populations  of children including those with feeding tubes, seizures disorders and special mobility and seating equipment.

Our growing list of on-site therapy services reduces transportation burdens on parents while helping to coordinate and improve health care for your child.
