You know you have a bright child. You want him to succeed in school but he’s really struggling.
School is hard! Your child is constantly challenging his brain to take in new information, trying to be a respectful classmate and a good friend, and managing a variety of feelings without acting out.
And if your child has ADHD or a learning disability, school is a daily uphill battle for you and your child.
If your concerns sound like these…
- My child’s grades have gone downhill recently and I don’t know what to do.
- It’s a nightly battle to get homework done.
- Every morning is a challenge; my child delays getting ready for school on purpose and even says “I hate school.”
- My kid is coming home with bad behavioral reports several times a week.
- I’m concerned my child is becoming a playground bully.
- My daughter comes home crying, frustrated by drama with peers
…you and your child deserve school support.
“How can you help my child?”
You want your child to be successful at school. Some skills I can help your child with that will help support success at school are:
- Social skills
- Attention and focusing skills
- Communication skills
- Tolerating frustration
You’re looking for a positive partnership with the school and you want to work together as a team to help your child. You need a therapist who will collaborate with your child’s school. I can connect with teachers and school personnel to bridge that gap. Some of the ways in which I can do that:
- Participate in Individual Education Plan meetings
- Phone calls with teachers
- Coordinate services with school counselors
“What about other members of my child’s team?”
Yes, I can collaborate with your child’s OT, PT, speech therapist, psychiatrist, pediatrician, or Inland Regional Center support team.
