Providing high quality, individualized educational and therapeutic placement consultation to children, adolescents, young adults and their families

Educational Consultation & Therapeutic Placement

We help struggling young people find success – and their parents find peace of mind.

We help the families of young people with a wide range of issues, including:

  • Psychiatric, Emotional or Behavioral Problems
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • Learning Differences and Learning Disabilities
  • Substance Abuse
  • Failure to Launch in Late Adolescents and Young Adults
  • Simply Unhappy or Under-Performing in the Current School Environment
  • In Need of Lifelong Residential Services and Housing

Because of our extensive experience with individuals of all ages, and our wide-ranging knowledge of placement options, we can help you find, access and successfully utilize many types of educational and therapeutic placements, including:

We work with families from throughout the US and from throughout the world. Our New York City office is located on Fifth Avenue and 31st St., across from the Empire State Building. Our main office is located in nearby Long Island, close to Kennedy and La Guardia airports. For our non-local families, we offer opportunities for meetings via telephone and secure video conference (which is more private and confidential than Skype and other standard video conference services).

The Process of Educational Consultation & Therapeutic Placement

With Stephen Migden & Associates, placement consultation is a dynamic, interactive process that focuses on your family member and his or her special needs. The goal is to find the educational or therapeutic setting that can best help your loved one achieve full potential, both academic and social/emotional. We do not make an out-of-home placement until we are assured that appropriate local resources have been tried and exhausted.

The primary obligation of Steve Migden and his team is to accurately and supportively represent each client, based on a careful review of the total situation. We do not solicit or accept compensation from any school, college or therapeutic program for a placement or referral.

Of course, even the highest quality placement consultation cannot guarantee either admission or success in a particular setting. However, because we remain involved throughout the placement and post-placement process, the chances of finding an appropriate match for your family member are greatly increased. Once a placement has been arranged, our team maintains contact with the new school or program. We have almost 100 years of combined experience, and we use this experience, as well as our diligence and focus, to help insure a successful adjustment and a positive outcome.

In providing services, Next Steps: Stephen Migden & Associates, does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, citizenship, ethnic or national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
