Children with language delays often have behavior issues because they have difficulty expressing their needs. Learn to nurture age-appropriate behaviors and expand your parenting skills to achieve more positive interactions with your child.
Alida is experienced in training parents to meet children's needs in their natural environment, in a supportive, positive manner, and to gently and effectively set limits.
"Alida's persistent attention to G's unique needs, her loving and firm behavior modification, her strenuous review, and her professional evaluations -- all with
parental involvement factored in -- portray a therapist who sincerely believes in the human spirit: 'Alida-Engelism.' As our family matures, we continue to
support and develop G's progress as we celebrate the beauty of being human. Thank you, Alida!"
