Services For Educators

Are you teaching a bright child who

  • can’t sit still?
  • needs frequent redirection?
  • seems to rile up his classmates?
  • often forgets to turn in his homework?

Does this student

  • ask a lot of questions, often seemingly off topic?
  • get stuck on certain assignments?
  • resist following rules?
  • suggest “a better way” to do things?
  • react in a way that seems “over the top?”

Do other students

  • have a hard time relating to this child?
  • complain about this child’s behavior?

I highly recommend having Julie Skolnick as an advocate for your family. She has been incredible in helping me and my staff to understand a child’s behavior and create and implement strategies that greatly helped our program grow.
