In consultation, Jody will explain what is possible and reasonable to expect for your child based on his or her individual gifts and their and your desires for behavioral changes.

Using a practical and proven methodology called Self Programmed Control (or “SPC”), Jody will work with your child to increase self-actualization and self confidence step-by-step.  Each step of the SPC program is designed to increase a person’s belief in themselves as they see tangible, reproducible evidence of their ability to control their mind, their reactions both physical and emotional, and through that, their experience in the world.  They learn, for example, step by step how to control their emotions so that understand, experientially, that they have a choice in how to respond to people, events and situations in their lives.

About SPC:  SPC was developed by Dr. Alfred A. Barrios, clinical psychologist. Dr. Barrios is a recognized authority on human behavior. He is the inventor of the Stress Control Card and author of the book, Towards Greater Freedom & Happiness

SPC provides the two basic components to achieve self-actualization: 1) The Belief Building Self-Control Methodsthe power to make the needed changes; 2) The Positive Direction component to determine what changes you might want to make.

SPC has been used with successful results (improvements in grades, reduction of stress, or other benchmarks as appropriate to the individual or organization) in the following schools, companies, and governmental bodies, and has been adapted for use with children with autism by Jody Kimmell:
