Preparing and beginning school can be worrisome for both the parent(s) and child, but preparation is key. Services are never too late to begin, but children need many skills developed such as language and social skills to be successful in school. When these critical skills are not developed within an individual, problematic behavior and regression can occur once school begins.
Some things to look for as concerns can be getting called to pick up your child, school staff asking you what to do, the school being unsure of what to do or what services your child needs, your child not wanting to attend school, lack of communication from school staff.
At ABA Therapy Services, we work with you and even your school to address areas of concern such as language and social develop.
