CHANGE (Children Having a Novel Growing Experience)—Elementary School

This innovative group helps children develop social skills and build self-esteem. With state-of-the-art behavior-modification training, kids learn new coping, problem-solving, and communication skills. Parents report that their children "graduate" from the group with improved self-esteem and confidence, as well as greater awareness of their emotions, behaviors, and communication styles. 

CHANGE can benefit any child, including those with learning disabilities or ADD/ADHD and those in stressful situations (divorce, loss, illness, or a new school, for example).

Parent workshop: CHANGE includes a one-day workshop for parents. You'll receive insightful guidance on setting healthy goals for your child, establishing appropriate rules and boundaries, and cultivating your child's self-esteem and potential.
