Parents that care for children with attachment issues often feel that they have to be "on" all the time. The stress of dealing with these children can take an enormous toll on the entire family.
At The Attachment Place we offer a program that includes parent coaching/mentoring, short and long term respite care, in-home services, tools, techniques, and guidance that will help you provide the type of home environment required for your child to heal.
The ability to form loving, lasting relationships makes human beings unique. The cycle of a loving relationship begins at one of our most vulnerable times, our birth.
Attachment challenged children need certain things in order to heal. They need to have a highly structured environment where mom or the primary caregiver is the authority figure. This child has learned to depend only on himself, as the adults in his early life have proven untrustworthy.
A child who has attachment disorder has a tendency to triangulate the adults in his or her life. That is why it is important for all of the people providing services for the child to be on the same page. School can be problematic, as it is often difficult to get the school personnel to understand what the child needs.
