Children, adolescents and adults who present with ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, learning disabilities or higher-functioning autism need more from therapy than talking about their feelings or “putting out fires” as they arise. They need a focused, skill-building approach in order to learn practical strategies and skills to help them navigate life successfully.
The therapy and executive function coaching we provide is about teaching strategies to improve lagging skills that are common in people diagnosed with ADHD, Asperger’s, learning disabilities and higher-verbal autism.
We understand from a male perspective how to make therapy a successful experience for boys and young men, many of whom have had negative experiences in therapy. We also work with girls and young women who present with ADHD and learning differences.
Parents find our approach to therapy to be a more effective use of their time and financial resources than traditional talk therapy. Parents are involved in their child’s treatment and take an active role in learning with their child.
