The Kazdin Method SM for Parents and Children

The Kazdin Method SM is an evidence-based program designed to help parents to effectively deal with a variety of parenting issues ranging from the very mild to the more extreme. Every child is different and comes with their own package of strengths and weaknesses. We can help your child to grow into responsible and reliable children. The Kazdin Method SM is among the most well-established programs for young children and adolescents. Our certified specialists will provide you with all the tools needed to help your child to listen, get along with others, and solve problems without resorting to temper tantrums, tears, or even violence.
