What others are saying about New Beginnings


From the Inside Out- What Our Therapists Are Saying

Among all of the wonderful things that highlight my career, one of the most rewarding facets of working with children in Early Intervention is having the opportunity to make a difference in their lives by helping them grow and develop, and in turn being personally rewarded with a greater appreciation of life. It is unbelievably heartwarming to bond with children and to become an integral part of the families that I work with. A child’s family is their greatest resource. The best way to support children and help them meet their needs is to build upon the strengths of their family.

Speaking of family, New Beginnings Therapy Services welcomed me to their family in 2012 and through them I have also grown in mind and spirit. I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for all of the support, knowledge and values that they have provided for me. I am proud to have been chosen to carry out their mission to provide excellence in care for the unique needs of every child. The well-being of each child is truly at the heart of this organization and I am so blessed and grateful to be part of such a great team of caring individuals.

I am thrilled to a part of the New Beginnings family. As a Pediatric Occupational Therapist, I work with early intervention services and home health to provide therapy to children and their families across Central Kentucky. I have worked with New Beginnings for four years, and within the pediatric population for six years, and have been witness to the professionalism and support they offer to their therapists. They advocate to ensure children receive the services they need as well as work diligently to get those services scheduled.

New Beginnings comes highly recommended by doctors, parents, and intervention service coordinators. So, when I discovered my own child would require speech therapy, I naturally turned to the caring staff at New Beginnings. Their credibility and integrity precedes them; I consider myself blessed and am proud to be considered part of the New Beginnings family.

I teamed up with New Beginnings right after I obtained my Masters in Communication Disorders. They offer a position within my field that is a perfect fit! The freedom and flexibility that come from creating my own schedule is ideal for me as a new mom. I also love that each day offers new challenges and opportunities. Home health care is never stagnant.

Over the past 4 years I have seen the impact of early intervention first hand. It is so rewarding to be welcomed into a family’s home and provide them with strategies to help little voices be heard. Kevin and Keara go above and beyond to provide support so that I can enjoy this process and provide families with the best care possible. It has given me such peace to know they are on my side. If there is ever an issue this company steps up immediately to offer guidance with professionalism and care. New Beginnings continues to meet my needs and exceed my expectations. I look forward to growing with them in my career.

From the Outside In- What Parents Say

New Beginnings Therapy Services has been a blessing to our family for almost 2 years now!  From day one we knew our daughter was in excellent hands.  Our therapist first guided us in teaching our daughter sign language to begin communicating at 18 months because she was producing very little sounds at all.  We had our daughter evaluated at Cincinnati Children’s hospital for Apraxia as suggested by our therapist and the doctor agreed at age 2 our daughter indeed had Apraxia.

We were saddened to learn that our time with our therapist was up because our daughter was turning 3 and no longer eligible for speech therapy with First Steps.  We registered our daughter with the county preschool but were disappointed with the lack of progress and communication from preschool after 3 months.  We contacted New Beginnings and made arrangements to pay for our therapist for services because our little girl deserves better.  On the third visit, she said 45 words in one hour’s session!

We believe our daughter has progressed this far because of our therapist’s hard work, dedication and passion to help children.  Our therapist has become a part of our family and we love her dearly.  She is extremely patient and makes herself available to us at all times.  Our therapist has given us great advice on how to promote speech and has no problem giving us advice or answering the million questions we have had.  Not only has God blessed us with a beautiful little girl, but also blessed us with a speech therapist that gives us the strength and tools to help our daughter get back on track.  We appreciate her hard work and recommend New Beginnings Therapy Services to anyone with a young one who requires extra time and attention for speech therapy.

My daughter was diagnosed with oral aversion at 6 months. She refused to eat and if she did, she would gag herself. She was strictly breastfed. I immediately sought therapy for her to help with the eating issues. After using several other therapy centers and not being satisfied, I found New Beginning Therapy Services. I couldn’t believe how my daughter responded immediately to the therapist and the techniques used. She has gone from not even putting food in her mouth, to now being excited to eat and even asking for certain foods! She has also had difficulty with speech and receives therapy for that too. When therapy first began she could only say a couple of words, now she is using 30+ words on a daily basis. We have been using their services for 6 months and I couldn’t be happier with the results. New Beginning Therapy Services really understands my daughters needs and the goals that need to be met. My daughter is now 20 months old and making solid progress with her eating and speech thanks to New Beginning Therapy Services.

Contractor Feedback

Unfortunately, none of our contractors were able to express their positive experiences with New Beginnings Therapy Services in writing due to conflicts of interests and regulations prohibiting the recommendation of specific therapists/companies over others. However, we invite and urge anyone who is interested in our rapport or reputation to call our contractors and ask specifically about our company. We receive weekly compliments on the quality of services we provide and work diligently to maintain an excellent rapport with all of our contractors.
