Client Testimonial: 2017
Stasia worked with our son weekly for two months last summer.
During that time, we had concerns about him exhibiting aggressive and non-compliant behaviors, particularly in a school setting. Our hope was for Stasia to help us identify inciting incidents and develop strategies to help change these behaviors. Stasia was patient and kind, and by gaining our son’s trust within the first visit, the sessions were successful.
For example, Stasia modeled a modified time out strategy that worked better for our child when he exhibited aggression. She also provided visuals and strategies that aided positive reinforcement for different task completions. Although follow through with any behavior modification plan can be very difficult for both the parent and child, our son’s negative behaviors became less frequent once the modifications became established and consistent.
He is currently completing a very successful year of Preschool, and his aggressive and non compliant behaviors are virtually nonexistent.
Stasia’s guidance, encouragement, and genuine concern was and continues to be invaluable to our family
