We Help Your Child thrive So You Can Worry Less
At AVCTC, we believe that children’s behaviors are their best available way to communicate their state of regulation and/or current abilities. We have tossed aside the common notion that children primarily use behavior either to get something, or to get out of something, as the scientific community now recognizes that there is a lot more to children’s behavior than meets the eye. We understand that a child’s behavior is a protective response from their brain to keep them safe, and look at their behaviors as clues to determine what they may be trying to tell us. This allows us to go beyond the what (e.g. child refuses to sit at the dinner table with family), and get to the why (e.g. child is severely sensitive to tactile input resulting in a sense of threat and lack of safety). Through play, as the child’s primary occupation, we strategically help the child regulate abnormal sensory input to develop physical coordination, emotional maturity, social skills, and self-confidence. We combine many clinical approaches to come up with a plan that is meaningful and impactful for your child. Some approaches we incorporate include: Integrated Listening Systems, Sensory Integration, DIR/Floortime, Social Thinking, Zones of Regulation, STAR Center, Reflex Integration, Handwriting without Tears and more!”
