PEP Can't Provide These Services, But We Highly Recommend Them

Vision Therapy

When seeking diagnosis and treatment for problems with vision, it is essential to seek the help of the right kind of specialist. 

Developmental or Behavioral Optometrists – are Fellows of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (F.C.O.V.D.) with post-graduate qualifications that enable them to provide behavioral and developmental vision care, vision therapy, and visual rehabilitation.

Relationship Development Intervention

At PEP we particularly like Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) for teaching social skills. RDI clearly identifies the various stages of relationship development and goes about teaching the stages in a systematic way. RDI-trained specialists also work directly with parents and strive to provide information and support, in order to make the learning activities fun as well as useful.

Relationships, like mathematics or reading, depend upon a foundation of many skills built one upon the other.
