Advocacy and Support for Special Needs Children on Long Island

Get Started

Comprehensive Advocacy and Support Services for Children and Teens on LI

We’d like to believe that schools have the tools needed to support our child. But classrooms are designed to support neurotypical children in large groups, working at a standard pace. When a child has any type of special needs, no matter its severity, many of the schools across Long Island are not prepared to help them get what they need.

Supporting children with special needs requires a multifaceted approach that addresses their unique educational, social, and emotional challenges. Long Island Psychology is dedicated to providing comprehensive advocacy and support services to ensure that special needs children receive the resources and assistance they need to thrive.

Our three offices, located in Garden City, Rockville Centre, and Roslyn Heights, NY, offer a welcoming and supportive environment where families can access expert guidance and personalized support. Contact us today through our online form or by phone to learn more.

Understanding the Needs of Special Needs Children

Children with special needs may face a variety of challenges that require tailored interventions and support. These challenges can include:

  • Educational Barriers – Difficulties accessing appropriate educational resources and accommodations.
  • Social Isolation – Challenges in forming and maintaining relationships with peers.
  • Behavioral Issues – Struggles with managing emotions and behaviors in different settings.
  • Emotional Distress – Heightened anxiety, depression, or other emotional challenges related to their condition.

Our approach focuses on understanding each child’s unique needs and providing the necessary support to help them succeed in all areas of their lives.
