A Different Approach To Counseling and Training!

A Different Approach To Counseling and Training!

A Different Approach To Counseling and Training!

Young people, who may be diagnosed with or have characteristics of Autism, “Asperger’s”, ADHD, Social and other forms of Anxiety, Learning Disabilities, Depression or Communication Challenges all have their own unique ways of perceiving the world around them. As a result they may react poorly to everyday situations and be treated differently by their peers and become victims of bullying, harassing or shunning behaviors.

“We get it!”

With over 25 years professional experience counseling, educating and training students with special needs and their families, Dr. Eric Nach, the President and Founder of S.S.G.C. in Boca Raton, is a professional who genuinely understands the complexity and challenges students with “special needs” and their families experience.
