Therapy for Elementary School Children

The childhood years during elementary school are a time of tremendous developmental change and self-discovery. Children are focused on learning, developing relationships with peers and teachers, working out their roles and responsibilities at home, and attaining success at school - all while they learn to negotiate and control their emotions. Sometimes the stresses of events outside of their control, for example parents who are fighting or going through a divorce, bullying, or coping with the death or loss of a loved one, can result in behavioral issues and create even more stress for the child.

If you are concerned about your child, our caring and experienced clinicians will work closely with you and your child to determine the best approach and provide you with the support needed to help your child to heal and grow, despite the obstacles confronting them.

Common issues elementary school children struggle with include:

  • sadness or moodiness
  • lack of interest in activities they once enjoyed
  • self-criticism and/or low self-esteem
  • ADHD
  • aggressive, disruptive, or oppositional behavior
  • problems managing conflict
  • failure to make friends or insufficient social skills
  • major life changes
  • parental conflict
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
