Behavior issues in young children often cause parents deep concerns. Behavior that is aggressive, explosive or diagnosed, such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) or other Conduct Disorders, raises several questions for parents:
- Is this normal?
- Is there something wrong with my child?
- Am I the problem?
- Is there help?
About Behavior Disorders
Behavioral challenges for young children can be wide-ranging and caused by a number of issues. A few examples of inappropriate behavior are:
- fighting with peers or siblings
- difficulty changing from one activity to another
- sleeping problems
- being unable to sit still and focus
- refusal to partake in normal childhood experiences or play
- picky eaters
- frequent tantrums
- extreme sensitivities and excessive fears
How Tuesday’s Child Can Help
Our evidence-based Behavioral Intervention program is designed specifically for families like yours. Our individualized services for both parents and children helps you, as a parent, to effectively confront your child’s behavior.
Behavioral Intervention has helped hundreds of families for over 30 years with similar issues. We strive to provide families with practical tools in a judgment-free environment. Parents are able to access clinical services and build a strong peer-support network. Children are placed in supportive, behaviorally focused classrooms designed to introduce and reinforce the scripts and techniques you will learn in the program.
The Program In Action
Parents work on individualized behavioral and goal planning activities, with group sessions led by a Clinical Psychologist and individual time with trained peer mentors. Tuesday’s Child offers both weekday and Saturday programs and is offered in English and Spanish.
While parents are in session, children receive services in our Behavioral Classrooms which use the same developmentally appropriate, behavior management strategies taught to parents. Emphasis is placed on cooperating with the teacher and interactive games and play with peers and progress is tracked on Time on Task, Compliance, Participation and Socialization.
