Who Needs Our Therapeutic Services?

88B3358-smParenting is not an easy job, and parenting a child who needs more support to reach their developmental milestones can be even more challenging. Often a parent does not know where to turn, how to help their child and how these issues will affect their child’s future.

The Child Success Center® team is here to help you understand the “who, what, where and how.” We help all children who are struggling with the “jobs of childhood,” including those diagnosed with ADHD, Learning Disorders, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorders, Executive Function, Dyslexia and Speech and Language disorders. We also work with children without a formal diagnosis, but who may be struggling in some way to meet development milestones and learning challenges. If you are concerned about any aspect of your child’s learning and development, our team is here to help guide you and your family.
