Learning Outcomes for Clients
Through therapy, we also aim to identify any learning difficulties or early onset of issues that the child may be facing. Ultimately, we hope to achieve a healthier bonding and foster a deeper rapport between the child and his or her peers, and his or her immediate family members.
