Children have their natural ups and downs. Some of this is related to normal developmental concerns. However, there are behaviors or signs in which children engage that suggest they need the assistance of a therapist.

Knowing these signs and where to seek assistance are both important. Significant sudden changes in behavior are often the red flag that there are problems. Professional assistance should be sought when a child has behavioral problems in a variety of settings which would include the home, school, and in times of play or relaxation.
