Kentucky’s Early Intervention System offers respite care for children with developmental delays (aged 0-3 years) that are served by First Steps. The need for respite is determined by the Individualized Family Service Plan. The respite provider would need to be enrolled under the First Steps Respite Program handled by Seven Counties. Emergency respite care referrals would be made to the Cabinet for Health and Family Services’ Division of Protection and Permanency.
