Next Step TherapyThursday, December 5th, 2019

Welcome to Next Step Therapy and Next Step’s Child Enrichment Centers’ new website! We hope you find information and inspiration on these pages that help you and your family. As we enter our eighth year of business, we decided that it was time for a make-over.

As you can see, we have added a blogging section to the new website. Our intention for the blog is to have me, Tracy the owner, Amy the Administrator, and several of our very best therapists write posts that will help you provide the very best for your children and family. The blog is not meant to promote our company, but to give you generic information that would be appropriate no matter what services you receive or where you get them from. We plan to tell you real life motivational stories, give tips on parenting, education you on therapeutic techniques, and keep you up to date on the quickly changing insurance landscape. In short, we believe in giving you information that you can really use!

You will find that after reading a post you have an option to reply. We welcome your response to posts and suggestions for other topics that you would like to see covered. However, because this is a family-centered website, we have some rules that you must follow in order to participate in the blog:

1. Foul language will not be tolerated. Any post containing profanity will be removed immediately.
2. This site is dedicated to the free exchange of information and ideas. We will not tolerate any type of slur or threat against any person, for any reason.
3. Please keep your posts positive. While some “venting” about general situations may be allowed, negative posts about any company, agency or person will be immediately removed and your ability to continue responding may be terminated. In general, if you are about to type something that you would never want to be about you….DON’T!!
4. Please be careful and be respectful of both your privacy and your families’ privacy. Do not put enough details in a response (my 7 year old son with ___________diagnosis, who has Beth as a speech therapist) that anyone can figure out who you are.
5. You may certainly disagree with a piece, and give your reasons why; however, you may not use name calling or hurtful language while responding.

We hope that you enjoy this new feature.
