Support the Inclusion of Behavior Analysis in Kentucky's First Steps Program
Kentucky’s First Steps program is a statewide early intervention system that offers comprehensive services to children with developmental disabilities from birth to age three. The First Steps program provides eligible children with access to a variety of service professionals (e.g., audiologists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physicians). However, notably missing from the list of services offered through the First Steps program is behavior analysis. Adding behavior analysts, assistant behavior analysts, and behavior technicians to First Steps’ list of qualified service providers will allow eligible children the opportunity to receive evidenced-based treatment from professionals specifically trained in the application of behavior analysis.
