Social, Emotional, and Empathy Development for Success
I am very excited to offer a new and innovative educational support program that intends to help toddler and primary age students who are having developmental, emotional, behavioral, social or other difficulties in adjusting to the Montessori classroom environment.  Sometimes these challenges children face, impede their optimal development and come in the way of learning and social adaptation. The goals of the program are to help children achieve their full potential socially, physically, emotionally, spiritually and psychologically. 

S.E.E.D.S. is a collaborative program based on Montessori Philosophy and the latest findings on child mental health, development and learning. I work closley with parents, head guides, assistant guides, school personnel and other professionals involved in the student’s care to:
  • Conduct careful and thorough observations and assessment of the student
  •  Devise an individualized plan that will foster the student’s academic and developmental needs
  • Provide follow-up to monitor progress
The S.E.E.D.S.  program services include the following:
  • In-class observation(s) of the student
  • Discussing concerns with the head guide and other school personnel
  • Meeting with parents at the school, my office or the student’s home
  • Family coordination and education
  • Devising individualized strategies that can be implemented in class and at home
  • Providing resources and referrals to services that will appropriately address the student’s developmental needs and linking the family with recommended services in the community
  • Recommendations for modifications and adjustments to daily school schedule, routine or structure
  • Individual and or family therapy sessions (additional charge applies)
  • Flat rate fee of $950
  • Therapy sessions are provided either through your insurance or at an adjusted private pay rate of $85 per session.

Please call or email me to find out more information!

* If your child is attending a non-Montessori school but you are interested in this program, please give me a call so we can discuss your situation.
