Cathy Collyer, OTR, LMT — Certified Happiest Baby On The Block® Educator & Infant Massage Instructor

Happiest Toddler on the Block Training

Parents and Preschool staff know that toddlers are different. They aren’t babies, but they aren’t “big kids” yet. And when they tantrum, they can really be a challenge. Here is the key to transforming your relationship with an agitated toddler: communicate your understanding of their perspective while teaching them to manage their feelings.

Happiest-ToddlerCathy teaches the Happiest Toddler approach to setting limits while teaching mutual respect and self-control. Direct instruction includes basic education in the developmental needs of toddlers, specific techniques to defuse tantrums and whining, and effective ways to build patience and confidence in the 18-month to 4 year-old child.

This program is especially successful with the special needs child that has communication skills at this level. Parents of special needs children are amazed to see even non-verbal children respond with less agitation and avoidance when they use this approach.

A 2-session private home instruction package includes Harvey Karp’s “Happiest Toddler on the Block” DVD, and a 30 minute phone session that can be used at any time in a 12 month period following the personalized training.

Fee: $250.00
