Home learning program
All Home Learning Programs for privately paying families begin with an initial assessment. At this assessment, we meet with your family to discuss your specific concerns and utilize a brief questionnaire to help us fully understand your child’s developmental progress. Our therapist will interact with your child and will provide your family with a summary of any developmental concerns, goals, and specific recommendations to reach those goals. Additional information provided to your family might include behavior charts, picture cards for transition times and specific tasks or other visual aids, suggestions for teachers, and specific resources for your child’s needs.
For those circumstances where parents have concerns about their child’s reaching of specific milestones, Learning Connections Unlimited is proud to offer private consultation services. As professionals, our company respects your wishes for discreet services. We offer you techniques, strategies, and enhancement activities to help your child reach that developmental goal, right in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
