How We Work



Parents, teachers, and administrators value Southfield’s in-depth evaluations and reports. We pinpoint your child’s challenges and personal strengths and then create a clear and actionable plan.


With a wide array of therapists, we can provide the exact therapies that your child needs. Our goal is to look at the whole child—as an individual, as a student, and as a family member.


Once equipped with the right tools and a supportive network, your child gains confidence to succeed in school, at home, and with friends.

All under one roof.

Because our specialists work together, we can easily coordinate therapies. By having all clinicians in one location, we reduce the stress of traveling to multiple locations for varied services, and we assure that all clinicians on the treatment team frequently communicate about the child’s latest developments.
