Have you noticed that your child isn’t responding when spoken to, or isn’t initiating speech, despite having the ability to speak? Have teachers informed you that your child isn’t speaking in school, or is “quiet”, although they are talkative at home?
Is your child having trouble listening to, or following directions? Are you receiving school reports that your child’s behaviors are out of control? Worse yet, has your preschooler been kicked out of school due to chronic misbehavior?
Perhaps your child is struggling with both!
As a concerned parent, you may have experienced sleepless nights wondering what to do about your child. Not knowing where to turn…you feel alone. You may have scoured the internet, and perhaps have joined a social media group in search of others who understand. Throughout this struggle, you may be second guessing yourself and your own abilities to parent. You want the very best for your child, and you are seeking high quality treatment that enables lasting change.
Rest assured, there is hope. We can help.
"A garden requires patient labor and attention.
Plants do not merely grow to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them."
