Temperament Assessment
Assessing children 5 months-5 years old

Temperament 
is a set of nine in-born traits that shape children's approach to the world and continue to influence development throughout life.

Temperament assessment is an insightful and a very useful tool in addressing a wide rang of behavioral issues: Sleeping, eating, tantrums, aggressive behavior, separation from parent, discipline, and more.

When parents understand their child’s temperament, they avoid blaming themselves for behaviors that are normal for their child, gain new perspective on their child’s behavior, establish realistic expectations of him/her, and are able to use effective interventions that are specific to their child’s unique temperament.

Temperament Assessment is a short process, accomplished in one session with the child’s primary care-giver(s), using a questioner and a short interview.                              
Following the first session, you will learn about your child’s temperament and how it shapes his/her behavior and/or development. You will then receive strategies to make desired changes, and learn how to accommodate your child in ways that will save you and him/her unnecessary struggles and frustration. 

*Research shows that parents' effective parenting and satisfaction with their children increased as they learned about their child's temperament.
