I help young children by helping the family. Often times, a child's behavior is related to a problem within the family. If we help your family, usually the child will get better. Sometimes, especially in the case of foster care or adoption, there is a "wound" that needs addressing, primarily by helping the child receive a loving adult to hang on to. Academically speaking, we may refer you to a psychologist to rule out a learning disability. A family therapist is the best place to start.
