Our first session often includes formal and informal assessment to evaluate the areas of concern. We will share our findings and provide a written report of our recommendations. Based upon the plan developed, services may be recommended for a one, two, or three times weekly basis.
Using developmentally appropriate materials, we use the client's interests to achieve our goals. Most services are provided one to one, but groups are offered when appropriate.
