Community Services

GROUPS and OTHER SERVICES 

   

GROUPS:     Dr. Collier occasionally offers groups and will form custom groups when there is sufficient interest in a particular area. Topics include: Kids and Holiday Stress; Social Skills; Floortime; Preparing for Summer Vacation; and Sibling Activity Groups. Most groups are for parents and children together, so parents  learn ways to support their children outside of group meetings. Group sessions can vary from 4 to 8 weeks. Costs are reasonable.

TALKS:     Dr. Collier periodically gives presentations in the community, on topics of interest to parents. Check back here for upcoming events.
