Meredith offers one-on-one therapeutic services utilizing ABA practices and other multi-disciplinary techniques including sensory play and art. Meredith conducts sessions within the home or school environments in addition to the Children’s Center. She develops behavior plans that can be implemented by parents, teachers and other caregivers to support a child’s social-emotional and behavioral needs across a variety of settings.
