What We Do

We provide a thorough assessment that includes behavior, social skills, and academic ability.  We also discuss and assist with nutrition and supplementation. We will then explain how the developmental "pieces" we discover relate to your loved one's symptoms, issues, and concerns.  

A program is written specifically for him/her.  You are taught how to carry out that program at home and receive support in the process. If you plan to home school we can write the program for home educating your child. If your loved one is in a day school or works full time,  we can offer suggestions for a program conducted after school/work and on weekends. 

In between evaluations you will receive support via Skype, phone or email.  It is encouraged that you maintain a strong level of communication with your support person to allow for changes in the program as your loved one progresses through their daily activities. After the initial evaluation and support period, we will meet again for a revisit evaluation.
