Early Intervention

Since 1971, we’ve been a leader in services for children with developmental disabilities. Our team approach ensures success in “discovering the potential” for each child.

LOGAN is a provider through Indiana First Steps, an early intervention system for infants and toddlers ages 0-3 who have special needs. First Steps is a program of the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) and is a family-centered, locally based, coordinated system that provides early intervention services to infants and young children with disabilities or who are developmentally vulnerable.
