Suzanne Starseed MHS, LOT provides parents with tools, based on the best current neuroscience and other research evidence, to help their children learn to self-regulate, cooperate, and relate more appropriately to parents, siblings, and peers.
Using a family-centered approach, In-Sync Therapy provides evaluation, parent coaching, school consultation and advocacy, training, and sound therapy services to help children function better in their everyday lives at home, at school, and in child care.
Our children with Sensory Processing Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Trauma, and who have been adopted present unique parenting challenges. The social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties they experience can make everyday family life stressful and full of conflict. Daily routines such as meal times, getting ready for school, homework, or bedtime can become battlegrounds and our relationships suffer. Through In-Sync Therapy parent coaching, parents learn to embed strategies into daily routines that support their child’s self-regulation, cooperation, and independence.
Many of our children struggle in school because they have difficulty with self-regulation and adapting their behavior to conform to the social expectations and rules of the classroom environment. In-Sync Therapy’s Classroom Behavior Checklist facilitates communication with your child’s teacher about your child’s needs and the accommodations that will support his or her adaptation and success in the classroom environment. Ms. Starseed helps parents and schools work together to provide the classroom accommodations and behavioral supports each child needs to achieve success at school.
