TOOLS for Parents
Learn brain-friendly behavior strategies that work with your young child's brain, not against it!

Attachment Theory emphasizes the irreplaceable role of parent child closeness for the health of every domain of child development. Dr. Onufrak believes that strengthened attachment is a central part of a child's improvement in the problems that brought them to therapy.
Behavior Modification does not have to be a mechanical, chart-driven enterprise. Applied in the context of ChildSightTools®, parents learn to be both warm and firm, giving children essential structure and limits, with multiple other self-regulation and emotion-management skills. The behavioral tools of ChildSightTools® are based on the neuroscience of today, not the time-out model of yesterday.
Play Therapy is based on the tenet the Play is the Language of children. Play provides children a way to engage in a non-threatening manner; face problems accompanied by humor and fun with puppets and toys; gain safe-distance from their troubles that allows them to grapple with and overcome them.
Parents gain the vision to see the daily life as your child does ... through their eyes
Each child's treatment is build upon the two pillars of ChildSightTools®.
Grow your child's coping skills
It's hard for young kids to manage multiple, complex, rapidly progressing development at once. Following rules at school, becoming a friend, managing intense emotions, and keeping bodies in check.
CST® helps kids gain coping skills that help them cope and cooperate at home, school and everywhere.

What BENEFITS does ChildSightTools® bring?
Reduce child battles, blowups & meltdowns
Whether kids are defiant, gifted, anxious, sensory challenged, acting out or retreating in ... their behavior may express feelings they cannot put into words. Parents feel lost trying to help when their child is with them ... and especially when apart.
CST® helps meltdowns become fewer, shorter and less intense; increases daily cooperation and closeness; and improves the quality of days at home, school and activities.
Regain Parenting Joy, Ease & Satisfaction
Parents can become discouraged, depleted, run-down, out-of-control and exhausted. The child you hoped for differs from the one your have; it's easier for others and you wonder why you can't parent as successfully.
CST® provides insights and tools that help you recapture parenting joy or feel it for the first time.
WHY is ChildSightTools® effective?
This model brings together 3 of the most developmentally sensitive approaches to young child work: Attachment theory, Behavior Modification, and Play Therapy.
The ChildSightTools® model is grounded in contemporary neuroscience which emphasizes co-regulation processes between adult & child, plus executive function sensitivity.
