Behavioral interventions including stimulus fading, shaping, systematic desensitization, play activities, and positive reinforcement are implemented to assist the exposure practice of brave communication. Parent-child interaction therapy, relaxation, communication, and social skills trainings are also used to enhance a child’s confidence and ability for exposure practice. Ms. Ransburg works closely with school personnel and families to assist them to strategize and implement the exposure practice of brave communication with a child in school and community.
What do parents say
“Our son began seeing Hsiu-Ying Ransburg when he was four years old. When he was three and a half, we had noticed that he would talk to our family while at home, but would suddenly became silent with us and others when he was somewhere else. He was also behind with his vocabulary development. Once he started preschool, he continued to exhibit the same behavior and began to experience stress in the classroom. We tried many approaches to get him to be comfortable and start talking. Nothing seemed to help. My husband found Hsiu-Ying through an internet search and we began treatment. Our son immediately began to show improvement and has quickly made progress. He is very talkative now and enjoys school and playing with his friends. We are so thankful that such excellent therapy was available nearby.” – Jennifer
