Summer should be FUN 

and kids definitely

deserve a break
and some down time

from school!


...summer is also an ideal opportunity to work on problems that may have had a negative effect on your child's performance during the last school year, so that next year they can enter school with these problems lessened or alleviated. Our individual, family, or group therapy formats for children and teenagers can help alleviate problems such as behavioral acting out, sadness, anxiety, social issues, etc.
Summer is also the ideal time to have any testing your child needs done. Some parents want testing to help with eligibility for special services, while other parents utilize testing simply to get a clearer view of their child's strengths and weaknesses, and recommendations to improve weaknesses. We will help you to determine what type of testing would be most useful to answer the question at hand.
Addressing your child's needs during the summer has the added benefit of not worrying about missing school for appointments, and, since the academic and social stresses of the school day are not present, it is a good time to work on improvements and growth to make next school year the best it can be!
