Carlena  Brame helps parents of an autistic child understand, channel and manage the stress that is a natural part of the parenting process.  A main focus of our work is to shift parental stress into positive attention for the unique needs of your child.  While stress and anger can be a natural reaction for any parent, our goal is to transform reactive emotional behavior into a proactive parent/child relationship.  This is accomplished through emotional management and therapeutic techniques suited for parents, caretakers and others who directly influence decisions regarding your child.

Good parenting includes both “love and limits”. With the use of practical techniques parents will learn to communicate effectively, establish rules, manage and extinguish unwanted behavior. Through this new found structure you will achieve empowerment that will allow you to increase self-esteem and constructive problem solving for you and your family. It is important that children with special needs are given proper support to achieve their developmental potential.  To do this, it is important for parents and caretakers to understand how your child is functioning in order to increase their cognitive, behavioral and emotional development.
