Important Resources and Information
I specialize in behavioral health, direct intervention, and parent and teacher consulting and training. My mission is to help children develop and improve social language skills, positive social interactions, and self-confidence, ultimately enhancing their overall well-being.
One of the key offerings is the Little P.I.C.A.S.S.Os program (Providing Interpersonal Communication And Successful Speech Outcomes).
This program aims to teach children pragmatic skills in a group setting while also supporting parents in carrying over these learned skills into daily life, fostering a more socially confident child in all aspects of their lives.

When My Senses Don't Make Sense! by Natasha Parsakia, MA BCBA, is an exceptional resource that helps children, primarily on the Autism Spectrum, better understand their feelings and offers coping mechanisms or strategies to overcome sensory integration deficits.
