This unique 6-week program allows our professionals time to get to know both you and your child. Once we understand what you are going through, we can offer solutions to make your life a little easier. We will help you understand what your child is experiencing so you will feel certain about the next steps you take for your family’s future.

Over the 6 weeks we become familiar with your child and family. In understanding the whole picture, we will provide you with strategies, answers and continued support.

  • Our professionals spend each day of the group observing how your child learns and interacts
