You can trust that you will receive the highest level of care possible. If your child is struggling with emotional or behavioral needs, please let us help.
We work with a wide range of needs. Our focus is on mental health but we will provide care outside of that area on a case by case basis. Typically we work with:
When our daughter was two years old, she was diagnosed with sensory processing disorder (SPD). This disorder manifests itself in various ways. For Madeline, it included behavioral problems, and auditory and tactile defensiveness — a hypersensitivity to sounds and different forms of touch.
While we were able to find some wonderful occupational therapy centers, preschool programs and parent support groups, one thing was missing… Where could we go to find a sitter who was equipped to meet our daughter's emotional and behavioral needs?
This question was incredibly difficult to answer. So much so that it led to the creation of Specialized Sitters. Over the next 9 years our daughters needs would evolve and pose new challenges, including depression and severe anxiety.
I am always amazed at the obstacles a family can overcome with the right help and support. We have worked with hundreds of families throughout the years, each one unique. However, although unique, one common thread runs through them all. Each one needed the help of an involved and invested team of professionals. Our goal was for Specialized Sitters to become a critically important piece of this support team. I am proud to say that we have achieved our goal.
