It can be confusing when your child has difficulty learning or displays challenging behaviour.

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
  • We  listen to your concerns and experiences to understand how your child reacts in different environments
  • We will suggest strategies that will help you support your child
  • For some children, a diagnosis is provided, if relevant
  • You will receive a comprehensive report of your child’s strengths and needs with suggestions
