While you wait
When you are struggling with challenging behaviors with your child, you need help now! We realize that waitlists are long and many families and caregivers are struggling with getting the help that they need.
We are offering a 'while you wait' service in order to get you connected with information and support when you need it- Now!
Begin the process of understanding your child better, try new strategies specific to children with challenging behavior, and drop in on our therapist consultation hours to work through specific issues and concerns.
These services are FREE and OPEN TO ANYONE!
Please stop back often as we expand our trainings (delivered through you tube and audio recording) and to sign up for future drop in sessions.
