NYC Consultations & School Visits
School visits and consultations are a great way for parents to gain more information about how their child is functioning from a language and social perspective within the classroom. This is ideal for parents who are concerned that their child is not joining in and playing with peers, or have teachers who have reported that children are struggling to adapt to the play and social expectations of the classroom. School visits and observations will allow outside, professional eyes to assess how a child is functioning within the classroom, and give feedback on strategies to help support that child. Visits typically last 2 hours, and are accompanied by a follow-up call or e-mail, and a written report that can be used to help the parent advocate for any changes or modifications they’d like to see in their child’s day.

Facilitated Playdates & Sibling Skills
Facilitated playdates take place in your home or the home of your child’s peer. These facilitated sessions are geared towards helping your child navigate play and socialize in a natural setting. Sibling skills sessions can take place in your home and are focused on helping siblings interact with each other in socially and age-appropriate ways. Sibling skills sessions also help parents support interactive play and engagement between their children. Both facilitated playdates and sibling skills sessions can occur weekly, or on a less consistent basis.
