This practice does not work with clients younger than six years of age, due to the developmental issues often attached to younger children. Play therapy, coloring books, drawing, board games, and other options that are both age appropriate and useful in helping child clients to open up are utilized. Children are free to bring any game or toys they wish to play with in therapy, and can even teach the counselor. This gives the opportunity to examine the child's level of social engagement, as well as other clinical issues that might need to be addressed. Involvement from the care givers of the child are hugely important in developing a care plan.

Behaviors are a means of communication, yet so often children are labeled based on their behaviors rather than seeing them as a communication tool. When children lack the self-awareness and tools to effectively communicate, challenging behaviors can arise. Using play-based approaches and art therapy, children will be heard and given tools to communicate more effectively. Parents also receive coaching to assist with redirection and recognizing when their child is communicating through their behavior and may need assistance to communicate more effectively.

Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.
