For academic progress to occur, children need to develop a successful and positive homework routine. Support by a Behaviorist is offered to create a homework routine to improve attention, self-direction, and become at ease and independent. Our clinicians identify specific motivations, and behavior challenges that present obstacles to progress. A specifically-designed program plan is created for each student by a CARE specialist to help transform the homework routine into a successful one.
A social coach whether on the playground, in the cafeteria, the classroom or other places where peer interaction occurs can help the student practice appropriate social skills and gain confidence. Having guidance during peer interaction promotes A healthy change in the way students experience their peers. A trained social coach knows how to blend in with the social environment, making their presence minimal and non-intrusive, while providing the support the student needs to engage in successful social interaction.
CARE’s in-home Summer Coaches, offer programs administered by professional clinicians in our Sherman Oaks center. The programs address emotional and behavioral skills, social skills, and encourage independence by providing structure and support during the summer months. A Summer Coach provides an important bridge between school years. If an In-Home Summer Coach is not an option for you, our In-Center program will provide a similar level of support.
