Dr. Sutcliffe works with families to determine whether medication treatment is needed and supports families as they include medication in their treatment plan.

School and LEP Advocacy

Education Specialists support parents in navigating school accommodations, including advocating for families in the 504 and IEP process.

Intensive On-site and Off-site Treatment

Intensive treatment is typically performed for 4-5 hours a day, 3-8 days either in the clinic or off-site in the family’s community.
