Why do some children thrive in social environments while others struggle?

Personality, birth order, disabilities, trauma, opportunities for interaction, and client history can all have an impact on your child’s success during social interactions.  Improving your child’s communication will decrease undesired behaviors and help you avoid power struggles. By teaching social emotional skills and using positive behavior supports we can help teach your child appropriate ways to manage their feelings with the philosophy that it is acceptable be upset but not to act out.

We can help you and your child break down social skills into smaller pieces they can learn more easily.

Children with ADD/ADHD or autism may not naturally learn how to interact with other children just from watching. They benefit from being taught specific lagging skills that lead to more successful peer interactions.
