Spring is in the air and we would like to invite you and your caregivers to join us for Next STEP as we discuss the Topic of, “ International Travel”. Please note, we had to change the date and time of this meeting due to a schedule conflict. We have not forgotten about this valuable topic and look forward to setting a new date and time really soon.

Next STEP is an educational, topic driven, peer community meeting designed to educate and empower individuals with disabilities to take the next step in their recovery. Topics range from solving the everyday problems and challenges of living with a disability, to accessing resources and information in order to maximize life participation in every sense of the word.
Peer mentoring is an integral part of this group as we learn best from those who have been there before us. While we will sometimes have speakers from the community, many of our sessions will feature presentations and experiences from members of the group so that we may learn from one another.
We recognize that the major life changes that go along with acquired disabilities affect not just the individual, but all members of the family and social network. While the focus of the group is on the recovering individual, we welcome family, friends and other support team members to join the conversation.
As the holiday season approaches, join us on December 7, 2018 from 12:00pm -1:00pm for Next STEP. We will host an open time of socialization to celebrate your continued recovery and to share your experiences and insight with others in your STEPs family! Steps For Recovery will provide all the refreshments! We welcome you to bring ideas for future topics and further input on how we can continue to make Next STEP a beneficial advocacy group for education and community integration post-injury.
We at STEPS are thankful for your participation in Next STEP and hope you will continue to encourage others to attend and celebrate the recovery they have made!
Presented By: Bryn Kennedy DPT. This month we will discuss the topic of "Return to Driving". We will have a panel discussion with several members of the community who have successfully returned to driving. We will discuss how to initiate the process, tips on when it the right time to seek medical drivers evaluation and vehicle adaptations which can help with driving.
We will also have an opportunity for you to share your ideas for future next step meetings.
Spouses and caregivers are welcome.
