About us

If you feel that your child may not be meeting his/her developmental milestones, we at FIRST STEP EVALUATIONS can help. For over 10 years, FIRST STEP EVALUATIONS has been providing expert comprehensive evaluations and special education services for preschool children, ages 2.5 to 5, at no cost to the parent or school. We are an approved NYS Department of Education evaluation site. Our staff, of licensed therapists and evaluators, upholds the highest standards of professionalism. Our bilingual and monolingual therapists are hand picked for their expertise, and sincerely care about children and their families.

Our team at FIRST STEP works closely with parents, teachers and Early Intervention coordinators. We are available to each of our clients. We are here to answer your questions and to guide you through the process. Our reputation for courtesy, warmth and professionalism is unparalleled. All evaluations are conducted discretely and efficiently in the privacy of your home or at the school site. Whether in English, Spanish, Russian, Hebrew or Yiddish, our evaluations will be accurate, thorough and timely.

Once the evaluations are completed a copy will be sent to you and to the Department of Education. Within a few weeks, the Department of Education will notify us about a date for a meeting to review your child’s case. Prior to this meeting we will call you to discuss what to expect. Of course, a representative of FIRST STEP will accompany you to this meeting. At the meeting, an Individual Education Plan (IEP) will be developed for your child, determining what services her or she is eligible to receive.
