Individual Sessions

Individual sessions meet virtually or by phone, once a week, for three or four weeks.

You will get personalized attention for the specific behavior/s of your concern to:

      • learn typical reasons misbehaviors occur,
      • choose from among several ways to prevent them, then
        decide on some strategies for handling the behaviors if they still occur

Plan on spending about one hour at the first meeting, 45 minutes for the second, then just 15-20 minutes for the third and fourth get-togethers. Virtual or in-person sessions are scheduled on demand, as needed.

      • Tantrums/Falling Out
