Life skills are the skills we need to deal effectively with the challenges in everyday life, whether at school, at work or in our personal lives. 

Pediatricians are the first point of contact when parents have concerns about their child's development or behavior. They provide recommendations for screening infants and young children to identify developmental delays and disabilities. Whether a problem is medical, developmental or behavioral, timely unearthing and treating it can greatly improve the child's likelihood of accomplishing his or her full potential for physical, mental and social-emotional well-being. They are an critical part of a combined effort of a family-centered system of care where they refer the child and family to a therapist for further assessment and therapy such as to a psychologist, occupational therapist etc.

What is NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming)?

From the baby blues, through the terrible twos and the trying teens, allow NLP to be your guide through the more challenging times so you can enjoy your children for who they are and allow yourself to be the best parent you can be!

  • you learn how to help your children to become superb learners;
  • you learn how to make sure your children have confidence and high self esteem;
  • you learn how to teach your children so they achieve their goals easily;
  • you learn how to make your children sociable and understanding;
  • you learn how to help your kids maintain their mental and physical health throughout their lives
