Do You (as Parent or Educator)…

Wonder how to implement effective help or Early Intervention?
Struggle with your child’s reactions to daily routines and events?
Wish your child had more skills and better behavior?
Resort to raising your voice, harsh discipline, nagging or ignoring?
Find yourself defending your child’s behavior to friends, family, strangers, or school?
Feel discouraged, frustrated, worried, or all of these?

If you answered “yes” to any of these, you’re not alone!  Many loving parents and educators struggle to give effective care and help to a challenging child.  Yes, some children really are harder to raise!

Fortunately, professional help and child therapy can add a set of “fresh eyes” to the situation, and give you new ideas to try.  With treatment, many children can improve.  In the process, parents and teachers can gain new understanding not only of the child, but of themselves as well.
