Your child specialist assists the team in addressing the children’s needs, as they experience the restructuring of your family. These services may be appropriate for some or all of your children, depending on the circumstances of your case.
The goal of the child specialist is to enable the children, who are also negotiating the details of their new home situation with each parent, to have a smooth transition. A child specialist gives your children a voice in expressing their feelings in situations that may feel uncomfortable to them. In addition, your child specialist will provide important developmental information and guidelines to help you reach an appropriate parenting agreement that maintains a healthy ongoing relationship with each parent.
