I highly recommend working with TAR! They made a huge impact in our day to day routine at home with our daughter. We worked directly with Pia; she was able to coach us in finding good strategies for our daughter to decrease her aggressive behavior without hurting herself. As well as, participating more in dressing and brushing her teeth. And last but not least, Pia also helped us set up a sensory friendly environment. We are very thankful for TAR and their approach in helping us make our lives and our daughters easier at home.
Working with Pia was a great experience for me and my kiddo, who has sensory processing disorder. Pia is extremely patient. My kiddo is easily distracted- but she would expertly redirect him. She explained how each activity supported kiddo’s goals. She also explained how I can support my kiddo with supportive activities at home. Our sessions were extremely helpful and I will definitely go back to Pia in future.
Pia was incredible with our son and helped him so much. Even though she challenged him, he alway had fun and looked forward to our weekly appointments. She also gave us a lot of great parenting tips as well. Cannot recommend her enough.
Pia is just amazing. She helped our son gain confidence, learn patience, and improve his overall regulation. She is endlessly patient, creative, and loving, with lots of great advice for parents too! So grateful for her help and support.
Pia worked with my seven year old son for several months. He needed help improving his hand strength to improve his handwriting and improving his bilateral coordination. Not only did she give me and my husband specific ideas for how to work with him at home to continue his progress but she was so engaging with him in each session. She always seemed to have several ideas in her back-pocket for how to get at the progress she wanted to see. It often seemed that she decided which activity she did based upon what my child was excited to do. She didn't just tell our son what to do, she partnered with him and let him be a part of the decision making. It was impressive to watch. We called our sessions with Pia "coaching for power and speed" and our son loved them. He was sad when the sessions came to an end! Thanks Pia!
