Parent Services
Training provided for individual parents or parent groups including adoption support groups, special education advisory groups, or community groups.

Together we can improve learning and behavioral outcomes for children with developmental trauma and special education needs.
The TIBA is a data driven behavior response system.  This research and evidence-based program involves collection of baseline data, implementation of a trauma-informed response system, and follow-up reports. 
We are available to observe students for schools looking to reduce behaviors of individual students that are interfering with learning or are unsafe.
We also support parents who have children whose behavior is not improving with school initiated strategies.
