At Great Kids Place parents and therapists play side by side our great kids. Parents are encouraged to participate in every session. Therapists meet with parents to set functional real life outcomes for goals and work with the family in each session. We also offer parent meetings to review progress, strategies and goals. This approach significantly improves carryover and enhances relationships. See Intensive treatment for more details.
The DIR approach and its Functional Emotional Development Levels is used to guide every interaction.
