Do you hear comments like these? Do you hear frustration from your child or teen when things go wrong? Do you see the frustration when your child or teen struggles to make plans to solve a problem? Do you feel the frustration when you are just not sure what else to do to help your child navigate through daily life?
Does your child or teen have trouble establishing or maintaining relationships? Do they avoid social situations or struggle to develop social skills? Are behaviour outbursts or low tolerance to frustration and change a concern?
Individual sessions provide an opportunity for children and teens to learn coping strategies that will support behaviour, social and communication skills. Exploring their learning style and how the brain works are an integral part of all strategies.
Research shows the benefits of starting intervention for learning, early to have the best benefits. If you have concerns about your child's development, don't wait. If you are not sure where to start, start here, to learn about strategies that will support your child to grow and develop.
Early Intervention encompasses the work done to support the child to reach developmental milestones in language, social-emotional and behavioural skills. All learning is play based and builds on the strengths the child has to boost the areas that are lagging.
Whether you have big or little concerns about your child's development, individual sessions provide a foundation for further learning. Parents are welcome to stay as play and learning partners.
Figuring out the road blocks that are making learning hard is a challenge for many kids and families. Some kids just need a bit of a jump start to get their learning back on track while others need more intense intervention to support development.
Individual sessions are designed to identify the road blocks and then find a path through them or around them so the child has the best opportunity to progress.
Some kids come with the road blocks already identified and their sessions focus on teaching strategies that are meaningful and fun so that learning becomes easy (easier).
Whether your child is struggling with school work or life and social issues the sensory playroom provides a great opportunity to explore how their brain works and what to do about teaching it new things.
Perhaps the learning advertised in a group program run through Affinity Consulting is what you are looking for, but your child would benefit or like individual support better. No problem, group courses can be modified for individual work.
The tween and teen years are challenging times! Now add some learning , thinking or social -emotional, behavioural challenges on top of that and it can be a recipe for explosions.
So focusing on the brain and the bodies need for good sensory input is a good jumping off point to get this age group interested and talking. Words can be boring for the tween and teen so we explore learning through fun and games. The teen won't see it coming but before you know it they will be hooked on exploring how they think and what their brain is up to.
Individual sessions focus on learning more about themselves and then learning how to advocate for the supports they need to continue to learn.
