Support for the growing years
Looking for independence
The team at Scope is here to help your child grow through their teen years and into adulthood
Going to school and making friends. Looking for independence. Having a say in how their life is going to be… This is an exciting time for teens and young adults.
Many kids and teens like to feel that they can do things themselves. They want to be independent. This goal is different for every person. Some kids may want to pack their own school bag or spend time with friends. Others may like to do their own shopping or learn to cook. Either way, your team at Scope will make sure these goals are part of your child’s plan. Your child’s team of therapists will create fun and practical activities to open a world of possibilities.
