In one short year, Katharine single-handedly taught our son skills that triggered an enormous growth in his cognitive and motor abilities, as well as his self esteem. In the same short year, she taught us how to encourage and work with him. Most important, she gave all of us an enormous infusion of hope –- quite realistic hope – for our son’s future.
The children working with Carmella learn and grow and surpass our expectations. I continuously recommend Carmella to parents of children with special needs and I am always thanked profusely once they begin working with her. She is truly special!
I ran an an early childhood conference where Katharine and Carmella presented a workshop on “Incorporating Social Skills Into the Early Childhood Classroom”. They were professional, a pleasure to work with and received rave reviews from teachers who took part in their workshop. Their presentation was lively,practical, with hands-on ideas teachers could take back and incorporate into their curriculum. I would recommend them highly excellent, useful and engaging presentation.
Carmella has guided my child to become a better version of himself. What more could a mother ask for?!
I recently attended a social skills workshop with Katharine and Carmella, and found it to be incredibly helpful. Both women were professional in their understanding of child development, but also showed themselves to be empathic and supportive of the adults in these children’s lives. The workshop offered concrete techniques, books and activities that would help encourage a young child’s self confidence and their ability to more successfully interact with peers. I would highly recommend it.
Katharine has a passion for working with young children and demonstrates a genuine commitment to the field of special education. She is incredibly supportive of all children, encouraging them to take risks, while offering an environment of safety, caring and unlimited possibilities. She has been highly recommended by parents of her former students and we are fortunate to have her as a part of our preschool community
Carmella & Katharine always had a structured approach to specific topics the children needed to cover, they provided excellent in-class examples of social situations and role-playing, and most importantly, we were kept well informed with written and verbal summaries. They are impressive, not just in their professionalism and dedication, but also in the degree to which they truly care about the kids. We’re grateful to them for their help and are happy to recommend them.
Confident Kid Club exceeded our expectations. Our 7 year old was hesitant to join the group, but at the end of the first session, he couldn’t wait to go back again. Learning how to interact with his peers in a safe setting transferred to “real life” situations outside the group. School personnel noticed a positive change in his social skills, which lead to more social interactions for him at recess and lunch. He even established some new friendships at school.
I have worked with Katharine in my capacity as a Psychologist and CPSE Chairperson and have been impressed by her professionalism, knowledge and genuine concern for the children she has worked with. She has an excellent understanding of the educational and social needs of children, and the ability to express her ideas cogently and literally.
I have seen amazing things happen with my child during his time with Carmella and I am incredibly grateful to have her guiding me down this uncertain road of raising a special needs child.
