The Incredible Years treatment program was developed by Dr. Carolyn Webster-Stratton at the University of Washington. This is an evidence-based program that has over 30 years of research supporting it's efficacy. The parent and child programs are intended to be delivered together so that both parents and children can improve their skills to reduce household chaos and increase family harmony. 

Randomized controlled studies have found this program to be effective in strengthening parents' ability to manage child behaviors such as aggression, tantrums, noncompliance, and other acting out behaviors. This program has also been found to improve children's social competence and reduce behavior problems.

We offer the parent and child programs concurrently so that parents meet at the same time their children attend Dinosaur School. This program is designed for children 4-8 years old and their parents or caregivers. These are 14-week groups that meet for two and a half hours each week. We are also happy to work closely with your child's teacher to extend the benefits of the program to your child's classroom. Lauren & Emily's regular collaboration ensures that each family's goals are being met.
