Household and Homework Survival – One on One for Those Who are Verbal and High Functioning.

  • Start and finish homework and have time for some fun
  • Retain information and hand in assignments on time
  • Stress free transitioning from different situations and activities
  • Learn how to organize daily life; activities, chores and appointments.

Social Groups / Supervised “Play Dates”- Building social success, self-confidence and interacting with  others in a fun setting.   Carole is available to act as a facilitator in a client’s home for supervised small group activity and interaction. She has been successfully organizing these small groups with children and their peers, family members including sibling and grandparents as well as caregivers.  Carole can facilitate success by helping organize an intimate group of 2-3 children who are able to practice together in a smaller world. In creating small successful interactions, each child is able to increase self-esteem and learn the skills and behaviors necessary to carry over into school, family and other settings.

Carole is looking forward to collaborating and working with OTs, PTs, SLPs, Educators, and other therapists who may have clients who could benefit from her expertise. Please feel free to reach out in confidence directly to Carole to make a referral or get together for potential future collaborations.
