Helping Children Reach Their Full Potential
A consultation is the right first step if you aren't quite sure what you need.
Maybe you know something is going on with your child, but you aren't sure if it's just a phase. You might be asking yourself, "Is this really a problem, or just a bump in the road?"
Or, maybe you suspect your child has a learning or processing problem -- but you want to know more about your options. Who can you talk to? Are there books or websites you could look at? If your child needs an evaluation, what kind of testing would be best? How do you go about getting an evaluation?
Consultations are also a great option if your child had an evaluation somewhere else, but you don't understand the results. You'll have someone who can cut through all the jargon and help you make sense of the test results.
Children develop at their own pace. For many kids, this development is uneven. This can cause difficulties when a child can't yet meet expectations in some area.
Neuropsychological evaluations offer insight about your child's development. A good evaluation pinpoints your child's specific strengths and vulnerabilities. It tells you how your child learns, why he has trouble with some tasks, and what he needs.
See What Families Had to Say:
Does your child have great ideas and good intentions... but can't seem to realize her goals? Is she smart, but disorganized? Maybe she studies hard, but her test scores don't reflect her effort.
Or maybe your son can't get his ideas out on paper. Is he motivated when playing sports or videogames, but doesn't tackle schoolwork with the same drive?
That gap between what students know and what they actually do is where executive functioning comes in.
Executive Function Coaching builds the motivation, planning, organization, and time-management skills students need to set and reach goals.
Therapy focuses on supporting your child where she needs it most, to steady her unsteady development.
Therapy is series of science-backed steps for targeting a specific problem, concern, or area of slower development. These techniques build skills and foster growth, providing a bridge to a calmer, happier, more balanced child.
