Assessment is the first step in getting your child the help that he or she needs. A comprehensive assessment can help determine why your child is struggling in certain areas and the best ways to help them. The results of an assessment can give a parent insight into their child’s strengths and weaknesses in many areas including academics, emotions, behaviors, and relationships. It’s a starting point where you can begin to better understand your child. We will develop a comprehensive plan to address your child’s difficulties and learn how to let their strengths shine. The plan will help you navigate this journey that you’re on with your child and enable you to participate in the best suited treatment options.
As a mother of two, I can relate to the many challenges that come with parenting. I understand the feeling of just wanting a child to be happy and healthy. Together, we will develop a plan to address your child’s challenges and improve their overall quality of life. I look forward to meeting you and your child and helping your family during this journey!
