Parents' role in therapy
Parents are instrumental in the success of therapy.  I invite parents to be involved in the therapy process as much as possible.  The type of involvement varies on a case by case basis, but here are a few common examples of parents' roles in therapy:

  •  Help your child practice newly learned skills at home.  
  • Help your child do his/her therapy homework.  
  • Try a new technique with your child to manage a behavior. 
  • Be open to suggestions and feedback about interventions.
  • Work with me to develop a behavior plan that is right for your child's needs.
