Indiana Governor, Eric Holcomb, proclaimed, October 3, 2019, First Steps Day, in honor of the 30th anniversary of the signing of House Bill 1974 which established the First Steps program. Kylee Hope, director of the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) received the proclamation at the About Special Kids Founders Breakfast, which honored the Special Kids Can’t Wait Coalition to secure the passage of legislation to officially begin early intervention and special education services in Indiana for infants, toddlers and preschoolers with special needs.

The DDRS is a program of the Indiana Family & Social Services Administration, and Sycamore Services, Inc., is proud to be a First Steps provider. If you have questions about DDRS programs and services, visit online at
