Care for Children International

Professionals at Care For Children International, Inc. work with the most complex cases of domestic and international cases of adoptees who have struggled with chronic cognitive and behavioral issues.

Who We Are

Care for Children International is a multidisciplinary clinic offering evaluation and treatment services. Our clinic has an international reputation in the comprehensive assessment of children and adults, providing a general and detailed understanding of each individual’s strengths and weaknesses.

Our clinic has specific expertise in the evaluation and treatment of individuals with Complex Neurodevelopmental and Neurobehavioral Disorders, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, and Multiple Learning and Attention Disorders. Additionally, we have an international reputation in the evaluation and treatment of domestic and internationally adopted children.

Dr. Federici has participated in the full range of situations associated with advocacy, including consultation, IEP meetings, due process hearings, and expert testimony as part of court hearings. We pride ourselves in our ability to offer clear and direct recommendations to improve an individual’s cognitive and emotional functioning.

We offer treatment on an individual or family basis. Our treatment is solution-focused and cognitively-based, helping to improve the child or family’s ability to effectively cope with their particular stressors.

With our internationally-adopted children, we offer treatment specifically targeted to improve the child’s understanding of normal family processes, structure, and parenting, with a focus on increasing bonding and attachment and regulation of Post Traumatic Stress, Anxiety, and Impulsivity. The process of “de-institutionalization” is highlighted. We offer Dual Language assessments in Russian, Romanian, Italian, and German.

Who we help

Are you challenged:

  • With your child having difficulty in learning and behaviors both at home and school?

  • With your child struggling in all academic areas due to poor comprehension, processing, and organization despite hours of help and study?

  • With your child who cannot seem to sit still or self-regulate? Called ADHD but you know there is more to it? Do you have “multiple diagnoses”? MOST CHILDREN ARE MISDIAGNOSED AND ON THE WRONG MEDS.

  • With your child who is constantly argumentative, and defiant with repeated social/behavioral problems at home and school? One who requires “24/7” supervision? A child who has “failed out” of multiple treatments?

  • How to understand the adoption process and how to raise a post-institutionalized child? Do trauma and disabilities affect your child’s and family’s functioning?

  • Parenting the difficult Domestic or Internationally Adopted Child? Do you need parenting training for crisis management? Are you at a loss? Overwhelmed?

  • In handling difficult and defiant children or volatile children who have been non-responsive to previous therapies, medication, and your parenting? Or kids who are “out of control”.

  • To gain appropriate accommodations under an IEP for your child when the school says “They are just fine and doing well”. ADVOCACY
