 “Navigating Neurodiversity: Understanding Your Unique Path”

 

The diagnostic assessment at Monorodi aims to provide diagnosis and psychoeducation, empowering and educating individuals to accept and understand their diagnosis. Additionally, techniques are offered to enhance the daily lives of both the individual and their significant others.

 

  • We offer a transdiagnostic approach to comprehensively evaluate each individual, utilizing physical observation, diagnostic tools, and interviews.

  • We offer psychoeducation on neurodevelopmental disorders alongside diagnostic evaluation.

  • Parents are trained to play an active role in the assessment process. During the assessment, the individual learns to observe themselves and participates in analyzing the assessment findings.

  • We provide training to increase awareness and understanding of one's own diagnostic assessment findings and how they relate to everyday life.

  • We offer support to relatives for the next steps after the diagnosis.

  • A written report of the assessment findings is provided.

  • The diagnosis is validated by a psychiatrist.

“Helping Parents Help Their Children”

 

It's typical for parents to find it challenging to regulate their own behaviours and emotions when their infant or toddler doesn't exhibit the expected behaviours. Learning to step back, take a deep breath, and pause before reacting is essential. Simultaneously, it's important to engage with the infant during interactions, teaching them how to respond to social, emotional, and problem behaviours. Our goal is to offer support and help you as a parent learn effective strategies for stimulating your child's brain through behavioral interactions.

 

Our mission is:

  • To assist the parent in becoming mindful of their  own behaviour and their environment in order to increase their well-being and parenting style

  • To provide strategies to deal with infant/toddler challenging behaviour

  • To stimulate social-emotional communication development via parent-infant/toddler interactions.
