The summer months can be a great time to begin therapy for children & adolescents. Schedules tend to be less hectic and both clinicians and clients may have greater availability and flexibility in their schedules. During the school year, the coveted after-school appointments for child & adolescent therapy services can fill up fast. During summer, it may be easier to fit a morning or mid-day appointment into your family’s schedule.
