Thank you for your interest.
The first step is to complete a Pre-Consultation Questionnaire that gives me information about your child’s behaviors and the type of assistance you may need. (I will keep your responses completely confidential.)
If I believe I can help, and if I have availability, I will send you an invitation to schedule a preliminary phone call.
There is no fee for the preliminary call. But because of that, I must insist on limiting it to 20 minutes.
After the preliminary call, if everything feels like a good fit, we’ll schedule the initial consult. If I don’t have availability, I’ll add you to my waiting list.
If I don’t think I can help you, I’ll let you know.
If possible, the initial consultation and any necessary follow-up calls will take place via video call (Google Hangout or Skype). I find the face-to-face connection allows for more effective communication and ultimately reduces the amount of consulting time required.
The initial consultation will be split into two video calls—each approximately 1 hour long. The fee (for both calls) is $200.
My goal during the initial consult is to further assess your situation and explain the appropriate intervention plan for making immediate improvements in behavior and home life.
Some parents use the positive behavior strategies I supply during the initial consultation to initiate change and proceed entirely on their own. They contact me again only if they need additional assistance.
What If a Single Consultation Isn’t Enough?
Following the initial consultation, I will give you a brief outline of the intervention plan discussed.
If you need assistance implementing the plan, my rate for continuing support is $100/hr. This includes phone calls, in-depth email exchanges, and in-home observations.
I do NOT charge for quick email exchanges to provide clarification or feedback about whether or not you’re on the right track.
I typically recommend using visual aids for positive behavior interventions with children. During the initial consultation, I will share examples of visual routines, schedules and behavior charts that work well.
You can either create similar visual aids yourself based on these examples, or I can create them for you. The fee for creating visual aids tailored to your child’s behavior plan is also $100/hr.
The initial consultation fee must be be paid in advance via my scheduling system. Fees for additional support may be paid through the scheduling system, or invoiced at the end of the month.
In order to avoid billing surprises, I will strive to be very clear in advance about how much time your support requests will likely require. In return, I ask that you tell me in advance if you need to stick within a set budget.
A typical consultation includes a total of 3.5 to 5 hours (including the initial consultation). But, of course, every situation and family is unique.
I appreciate your taking time to read this, and I look forward to working with your family. If you’re ready to move forward…
