Who We Serve
Children do not communicate in the same way adults do. If you’re struggling to understand your child’s emotional, behavioral, social or learning difficulties, our team is here to help.
Our data-based, holistic approach focuses on the entire child and understanding their individual needs. We view our comprehensive solutions as a partnership to help young people understand and identify feelings, learn effective coping skills and heal from life’s challenges.
We serve children with a wide variety of symptoms, including:
- Behavior and mood disorders.
- Asperger’s syndrome.
- Autism spectrum.
- Tourette syndrome.
- Learning challenges.
Specialized Solutions Based on Your Child’s Needs
Our approach focuses on the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) diagnostic framework, which is a way of understanding your child from a holistic perspective. Traditional views of mental and behavioral health use a reductionist approach. Professionals will look at a list of typical symptoms and create a general treatment plan based on this list.
The reductionist perspective can result in trial and error when deciding on an approach, and it gives a label more authority than the unique person. With the RDoC approach, we look at multiple criteria to understand your child’s experience on a personal level. We consider psychological and behavioral as well as biological factors.
With this personalized approach, we can find the right solution for your child the first time around. We reduce the need for trial and error and help your child feel seen and understood rather than categorized.
Your child has unique strengths and skills, and with our specialized solutions, they can embrace the way they’re built Here is a list of solutions our professionally trained team can provide.
Your child’s custom care solution may include evidence-based therapy. Depending on the difficulties your child faces, we may recommend different therapeutic modalities, such as:
- Behavior support
- Speech therapy
- Executive function coaching
- Cognitive-behavioral intervention for tics (CBIT)
