Autism Therapy
Special Education

With the New York City school system increasing its demands on our children, Dana-Lee's pediatric rehabilitation center now provides after school tutoring for children K-12. This program provides parents with the appropriate support to help their child reach their potential or excel in the academic world. We provide your child with a one on one instruction and a comprehensive approach that will enable your child to have stronger academic skills needed for math, reading, and writing. Your child will find learning in school fun with the skills they have mastered. 

Sleep Training

Sleep therapy treats problems and teaches independent sleeping, implementing healthy routines and sleeping habits. The method for each child is carefully calculated taking all parameters into consideration including development, cognitive ability and parenting style. The adult programs consist of lifestyle changes, sleep hygiene and careful monitoring of sleep patterns. Following the intake treatment involves meditation and psychotherapy that alleviates the symptoms of anxiety, PTSD or daily stressors that may overwhelm normal cognitive and neurological coping mechanisms.
