Legislation making changes to the First Steps program, which provides services to developmentally disabled children, has been signed into law by Governor Matt Blunt. Blunt, who at one time proposed eliminating First Steps, says early intervention can mean the difference in a young at-risk child’s education, and he’s glad that the families of these kids will be getting some financial help. The Governor also signed bills providing some immunity for mental health professionals, substance abuse counselors and others trained to provide suicide intervention.
