Who Seeks Out My Services?

I listen to how each child and family is unique and design an intervention to meet those unique needs.

I listen to how each child and family is unique and design an intervention to meet those unique needs.

In my work resolving behavior problems, addressing the behaviors is only a small part of the child’s behavior plan. Just because a child has ADD/ADHD, Autism/ASD, sensory issues, and any other physical and/or developmental issue does not mean that behavior problems are automatically part of the symptoms, condition, or diagnosis. While rewards and consequences can be changed, the environment adjusted, and/or medications given, the child’s emotional world and that between the child and their caregivers also should be considered, understood, and addressed.

The parents who utilize my services:

  • Want to ensure the best and most comprehensive intervention(s) for their child. These parents understand on a basic level their child is calling out for help and is not able to cope with their environment (environment refers to the physical environment and the emotional environment).
  • Understand that while there are behavioral manifestations, there are also emotional issues and feelings between the parent and child, the teacher and child, and the child and his or her environment that must be understood and addressed.
  • Need help organizing all the information from evaluations, speech, occupational, and physical therapy; psycho-neurological and medical evaluations, and IFSP/IEPs into a coordinated, comprehensive, and meaningful treatment plan both at home and at school.
  • Know that it is their responsibility to help their child, but often wonder if they are doing something “wrong” (without knowing what it is or why it is wrong).
