Family Service Professionals

We’re here to show you what works for intense kids and their families, so you can make an even bigger difference.

Intense kids are more – more emotional, more sensitive, more energetic, more focused, more excitable, more distracted, more controlling, more defiant, more stimulated, more overwhelmed, more strong-willed – than other kids.

But when you work with intense kids and their families, it means your work is doubly challenging. You’ve got to know what works with kids… and you need to guide parents with that different approach, too!

We offer two tracks for professionals – Help Parents Better Help Their Kids (Online Class) and Parent Coach Certification. Whichever option you choose, you will gain the tools, techniques, and skills to make an even bigger impact in the lives of children.

Our trainings are specifically designed for working with families of intense kids and are also appropriate for kids who may have Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD, Autism, Giftedness, Reactive Attachment Disorder, or Oppositional Defiant Disorder.
