Family Resource Specialist
As your Family Resource Specialist (FRS), I have served with the Early Steps Program for twenty five years and know the importance of family involvement in the development and care of your child.
I have experienced the joys and concerns that go with caring for a child with special needs.
I am here to provide you with information and opportunities for you and your child.
I can also provide you with community resources, support groups, steps for transition to Pre-K and assist with understanding Early Steps services.
Please call or email for any assistance.
I am here for you at your request.
