Take The Test

Thank you for visiting our "Take the Test" interactive tool. Many parents are questioning themselves and trying to figure out if they need help for their family. Often parents are given conflicting advice about the seriousness of their child's behaviour or about what kind of help might be useful or if help is even needed at all. I hope that this five minute test will assist you with your decision-making process as you are considering your child's situation and your family's circumstances.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss the results whatever they may be. We'll be happy to speak with you.
