We offer consultation to parents/caregivers and schools. When offering consultation services, we can work with parents to provide assistance with implementing strategies to best meet your child’s/adolescent’s needs at home. Dr. Shivers also offers school-based consultation to school staff, including teachers and Child Study Team members. As a certified school psychologist with experience working in New Jersey public schools, she has an understanding of the general and special education systems.
How does it work?
Parent/caregiver consultation consists of sessions to assist with various issues, including behavior management techniques, identifying ways to strengthen the parent-child relationship, and determine if your child/adolescent would benefit from an assessment or ongoing treatment. School consultation may include conducting an in-class observation and/or meeting with teachers or Child Study Team members to provide recommendations for your child’s academic plans.
