Welcome to The Attachment Place
The Attachment Place, LLC was founded to provide help and support for families experiencing problems with attachment disorder, sometimes referred to as reactive attachment disorder (RAD) and/or developmental trauma disorder (DTD) in children, teens, and young adults. In addition, many of our clients have Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), as well as mood disorders. We provide short and long-term therapeutic respite, as well as parent coaching and shadowing, all in a farm setting.
Serving clients throughout the United States.
Why Use Therapeutic Respite?
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.
The Attachment Place:
At The Attachment Place, we offer a program that includes parent coaching, 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.
Healthy & Unhealthy Attachments
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.
PHILOSOPHY OF CARE
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.
ON PREMISE EDUCATION
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.
THERAPEUTIC RESPITE VS. RTC
At The Attachment Place, we teach attachment challenged children, teens, and young adults how to be productive family members in a home environment. We work together and play in a family type setting. Learn more about the difference of Therapeutic Respite and RTC by clicking the link below.
