Sometimes what is required for a child to find success in a typical preschool setting is an opportunity to prepare the nervous system, ready the body and brain, learn expected behaviors, build-in supports and strategies unique to the child, and practice. We would like to help by providing a parallel experience to preschool and infusing opportunities for skills to emerge in a supported environment while collaborating with parents and the traditional preschool teachers to adapt the environment and develop methods to support the child.
