The Connecting for Kids mission is to provide education and support for families with questions or concerns about their child’s development.  We are targeting families with children from birth to twelve years of age who have some concern about their child’s development (including behavioral concerns).  We are serving all children; including both children with and without a formal diagnosis such as ADHD or an autism spectrum disorder.  We also offer programs for children who may be described as shy, anxious, impulsive or quick to anger.  We serve all areas of child development whether it is physical, emotional, communication, adaptive or cognitive.  We are focused on the west side of Cuyahoga County and the east side of Lorain County.
