W.A.Y. for Parents
What About You (W.A.Y) is the partner framework that is used at TheraPeeds Family Center, to support the neurological gains made with the HOPE method. This model focuses on changing the parenting environment of our clients so that the new neurological patterns acquired in the brain during their intensive can be supported in the home.
Our W.A.Y program begins with the use of standardized testing and clinical observation to identify parenting behaviors. It has been demonstrated with over 50 years of research that there are specific parenting patterns that negatively affect child development.
When these patterns are identified, we then look for the root of these behaviors by identifying how the parents are processing their specific parenting experience in their mind, so that we can rewire how they are processing and thinking of their parenting to change their parenting behavior.
