This program sees children from birth to 18 years with a variety of developmental issues including developmental language delay, school challenges including ADHD, learning disabilities and school failure, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety disorders, behavioral problems, and more. Our typical model of care is a 3 part consultation:

  • Visit 1 is a parent/guardian only meeting to discuss the concerning history of the child/adolescent and to gather information from previous providers working with the family. For example: early intervention records, teacher information, prior testing, etc.
  • Visit 2 is an assessment/evaluation with the child. This typically occurs after we have collected any prior testing information or evaluation forms.
  • Visit 3 is an appointment with the family to discuss diagnosis and recommendations.

For appointments or more information, please call 617.414.4841.

13 minute video:  This video was designed to offer breathing and yoga exercises for pre-K to middle school children struggling with remote learning.

Restorative yoga is a style of yoga designed to promote relaxation. The goal is to allow the body to be still and over time if the body is still the mind can learn to be still as well. The poses are deigned to allow the body to relax on a pillow, blanket, or bolster. The poses are designed to calm and reset the body and mind to help overcome stress.
