How We Help

Play &
Language

Play & Language

Play is how children explore, test ideas, solve problems and learn to navigate their emotions. Communication is intertwined with play as it empowers self-expression, fosters critical thinking, and opens the door for improved literacy skills.

Behaviors
& Emotions

For children who think differently, emotional regulation can be challenging. Figuring out how your child is impacted and viewing the experience from their lens, positively influences their behavior and permanently improves their outlook.

Parenting

Parent coaching is most effective when caregivers gain the confidence to embrace challenges. With my guidance and support, you will learn how a simple change to your approach can accelerate your child's progress.

Mealtime

Your child's feeding journey is personal, complex and ever-evolving. By using the 3Es of Mealtime, you and your child will share the joy of food...they will even ask for veggies by name.

What People Are Saying

  • We have been working with Polina for almost 2 years. She sees both of my 6-year-old twins every week. We originally came to Polina for speech services, but it has evolved into so much more! Polina works with us on behavior management, impulse control, executive functioning…just to name a few things. In addition to working directly with our sons, we also do parent sessions as often as possible. Polina is amazing. She has helped us through so many challenges. She has a way of helping children in such a way that they only think they come to play with her.

  • My son struggled with feeding for many months before we found Polina. We had tried other feeding services that helped with some skills, but Polina’s approach changed his whole attitude toward food. She established a great relationship with him, so he trusted her to try new foods with new colors and textures. And she taught me how to replicate her approach at home, carefully explaining how she did things and why they worked. He is now a greedy eater, loves helping us cook, and is even making his way onto the growth chart for his age. We are so grateful!
