Dr. King provides play therapy for young children and cognitive-behavioral therapy as children are better able to use their language and cognitive skills to problem-solve. Dr. King specializes in providing the DIR/Floortime approach, originally developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan, in order to help children develop more social engagement with their caregivers. She also often uses Social Thinking, developed by Michell Garcia Winner, SLP, to help children and adolescents develop their social skills.
Dr. King provides psycho-educational evaluations to current clients when needed for re-evaluation to determine progress and/or to inform decisions for treatment or school support. An evaluation may include assessing a child's cognitive, academic achievement, and memory skills along with measuring his or her emotional, behavioral and adaptive functioning.
Dr. King believes that parents know their child best but are sometimes out of ideas as to what to do next. If you are feeling stuck with a behavior you are not sure how to support or just cannot figure out why your child is struggling, a parent consultation session might be helpful.
