Preschool and School-Based Consultations

Parents Place offers individually adapted consultations to teachers, classrooms, and entire schools. Working in partnership with teachers, administrators, and parents, we offer evidence-based strategies for:

  • Optimizing learning and social adjustment for all students
  • Establishing effective positive behavioral interventions for children with challenging behaviors
  • Organizing classroom environments to help minimize sensory overload and distractions
  • Facilitating social skills and social inclusion
  • Improving parent-teacher communication

Our child development and learning specialists partner with school staff to address challenges in development, learning, behavior, and socialization. Our goal is to facilitate appropriate and timely interventions for each child. We observe children, teachers, and the classroom environment and strategize with educators and administrators to better meet the needs of all children.

Parents Place staff also works with parents, providing them with parenting support and information about resources and referrals for services. Our  licensed psychologists, educational specialists, speech and language specialists, and occupational therapists are available to support children and their families.
