Getting Ready for Your Appointment
We know that going to new places, and meeting new people, can cause worry and stress. Read one of these stories ahead of your visit, at a time when your child is calm and attentive. Together you will see photos of our offices, learn about some activities, and see other children having fun here. The story can help you and your child get familiar with ISAND. Read it a few times before you come, and talk about what might happen during the visit. It helps to know more ahead of the appointment, and then the new things do not seem so scary!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
