Or Who May Have:

Learning Disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Aspergers, Nonverbal Learning Disorder, Developmental Delays, Emotional/Behavioral Needs, Sensory Integration Disorder, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder?

This program is designed to support you as a parent of a child who is challenging, by providing you with over 40 positive-discipline tools and effective communication skills. This will help you to reduce the time spent nagging, yelling and in conflict with your child.

You will learn how to develop healthy family relationships, see the world through your child's eyes and better understand their behaviors, which will lead to not getting hooked by them. By learning these skills, you will begin responding in a desired manner within the first class. This will begin to create more harmony within your family.

Kathy McNamara, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #33319, created this class and has facilitated it for almost 30 years. She emphasizes that, "This class focuses on the SOLUTIONS to your child's acting out behaviors."

Kathy is the proud parent of a son who has Special Needs and is familiar with the unique problems, concerns and joys surrounding this population.

Kathy has been working with: Children, Couples, Families and Individuals for over 20 years in Los Gatos, California.
