Some of our clients have children with diagnosed Learning Differences and Special Needs such as: ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder SPD, Aspergers, Spectrum Disorders, Downs Syndrome, Speech/Language Delay, Auditory Processing, Executive Dysfunction, and more.
Challenges in school
We also serve students who have traits that make school exceptionally difficult. Teachers may have described your child as: fidgety, a sensory seeker, overly anxious, easily frustrated, misses social cues, distractible, slow worker, obsessive, unfocused, or disorganized.
