Consultation, Coaching, and Training
We enjoy consulting with families, mental health professionals, health care providers, educators, and community members about topics related to assessment, mental health, development, and learning.
Consultation services include:
Working with families of children with special educational and mental health needs, including team building with special education teachers, teachers, and school staff and education and advocacy for families.
Helping families more deeply understand and make use of IEP’s, Behavior Plans, and past testing, including a thorough review of past testing and discussion of child’s current needs at home and in the community.
Collaborating with health professionals, educators, and community members regarding treatment planning, goals, and client issues.
Consultation and training with non-profit organizations and schools regarding mental health issues.
Some of our families choose to work with us after assessments to address and implement specific goals. Because we have already formed a relationship during the assessment process, this can often be a natural transition. When we provide coaching, it is generally time-limited and specific to one goal. Examples might include:
Creating a family meeting schedule to enhance family communication.
Addressing a tricky family dynamic that gets in the way of change.
Developing and setting appropriate limits with children.
We enjoy providing trainings and workshops to fellow professionals, as well as parents. Some of our favorite past trainings include:
