HOW WE HELP
Learning Practical Life Skills
Over time, our students engage in real-life activities consistently in order to develop healthy habits. Students show mastery of the skill when they’re able to do it independently and teach it to others thoughtfully.
Our founder, Dr. Brandon Park, is a Clinical Neuropsychologist & Behavioral Specialist who personally reviews each child’s profile to assist with creating a specific program tailored to how their brain is wired.
Doing It on Their Own
Increasing Independence is at the core of our program and belief system. Oftentimes, teens don’t try anymore because they consider themselves “failures.” We work to disprove this and improve their self-esteem and overall happiness.
