Childhood Intervention

Koru Family Psychology offers a variety of specialized programs for children with exceptional needs.  We believe that each child should be given the same opportunities to learn, develop, and grow.  Early intervention and support is crucial in maximizing your child’s success.

We provide an innovative treatment model to help children and parents develop a deeper understanding of their difficulties and to effectively manage the daily challenges children with and their families face. Effective interventions are individualized to address a variety of childhood challenges and disorders, including ADHD, anxiety, depression, learning disabilities, behavioural challenges, and autism.

Children experience a wide range of emotions and challenges. They can be greatly affected by the world around them in so many ways. Although they are often resilient, children may have difficulties coping with the everyday stressors in their lives. Often times they lack the necessary skills to cope effectively. As a result, they may express their challenges behaviourally. These behaviours can be troubling and exhausting for them and their families and may include bed wetting, tantrums, argumentativeness, defiance, hyperactivity, nightmares, withdrawals, peer conflicts, and school refusal. Our family-focuses counselling and intervention services help children and their families navigate difficult situations, learn more about what is underlying the presenting behaviours, learn adaptive coping skills, and promote healthy relationships.

Specialists in the field of ADHD, we provide an innovative interveniton model to help children and parents develop a deeper understanding of ADHD and to effectively manage the daily challenges children with ADHD and their families face. Intervention programs involve regular support to address day-to-day difficulties and to facilitate ongoing progress with parent and child identified goals.

Through our intervention program, parents and children will:

  • Increasing awareness and understanding of ADHD
  • Improving overall self-awareness
  • Finding strategies that can solve everyday ADHD related challenges
  • Uncovering strengths that can lead to more daily ease and success
