Our Parents

Mitchell’s Place parents are committed, cooperative, loving parents of neuro typical children and children with special needs; they are dedicated to maximizing their child’s unique potential.  Partnerships with our parents is an integral component to the effectiveness of each child’s intervention. As such, Mitchell’s Place parents are active participants in their children’s programs and compassionately supported in a variety of ways, including:  

  • Regular Team Meetings – Parents are part of the team too! As such, feedback from all members of a child’s treatment team is considered at Team Meetings, which keeps programming relevant and moving at a rapid pace.
  • Partnership in the development of treatment goals – We value and understand the importance of working with our families to address each child’s and family’s specific needs.
  •  Program Reviews – In addition to regular Team Meetings, Program Directors meet with families either once or twice each year (depending on which program they are in) to review overall response to treatment, curriculum completion, and short- and long-term goals.
  • Generalization to the natural environment – Programming is only as effective as its utility in the child’s natural environment – daily family life! Program Directors and teachers work on goals across environments in the school setting and when possible, they work with parents to design interventions to be used during naturally occurring situations, to ensure gains are generalized and maintained outside of the therapy setting

At Mitchell’s Place, effective treatment is a team effort with all parties dedicated to guiding children to unlock their potential.
