Hello my name is Leo, I have been working with special needs children in Los Angeles who have various special needs for over twenty years. In my experience I have noticed that although parents try and do their best at home, sometimes more help and guidance is needed. I truly believe that every family can and should take pride in their children regardless of what their child's special needs are. That's why I created "Family Pride". Pride comes from both small achievements and milestone achievements. My goal is to help families build a better understanding of their child's needs so that the entire family can be successful; whether it be providing tools for your child to interact effectively with others in order to make friends, sit calmly during a night out to dinner or tools to improve your child's ability to listen and focus.
There are many places to turn to for help and advice for families with special needs children, but few offer the understanding and hands on experience that I do. As a Behavior Intervention Implementer for 20 years, I have personally implemented many behavior support plans and strategies with countless children working hand in hand with them daily. (literally)
In addition to working with children directly, l help parents, siblings, and support staff (nanny's, baby sitters) build the confidence, trust, and understanding needed so that every member of the family can be proud and enjoy the reward of a closer and more understanding family.
