Parents are involved in creating the therapy goals for their child. We take parental input and weave it into plans for intervention used by our therapeutic team.
Parents are often included within the session where therapists model interaction skills such as extending language, varying play, and prompting.
Outside the therapy session, we continue to guide parents to help them make sense of everyday challenges and coping methods.Whether it is a quick chat in the waiting room, or a brief question via text, we are there to answer parent queries.
We realize a quick chat or email may not always be enough. Everyday living in itself throws many challenges, coupled by confusions/doubts thrown in due to the child’s different learning patterns. We periodically meet parents on a 1:1basis, as needed (from once a month to once a quarter) to discuss issues, provide specific guidance as well as home-based strategies that suport the work in therapy.

We also offer more formal parental guidance in the form of Focused Parent Training conducted in small groups on topics relevant to the group. Learn More.
