Attachment disorder, known by such names as Reactive Attachment Disorder [RAD] and Disinhibited Social Engagement Disorder [DSED], is a tragic developmental disorder that impacts children and their families. Attempts to engage these children in typical types of therapy often fails, and may leave children in an even worse state. Orchard Human Services proudly serves children with disordered attachment, using a Developmental Framework that helps these fragile children catch up on lost developmental steps and begin to heal.
Dr. Darleen Claire Wodzenski of Orchard has developed a Transtheoretical Approach that rests upon a Developmental Framework that addresses the underlying causes of RAD and DSED. In this way, the therapy focuses primarily on the child’s fundamental developmental issues. Therapeutic modalities are woven into the fabric of the intervention, allowing the child to heal in little patches across the developmental domains much like a patchwork quilt is constructed from little squares.
Dr. Darleen Claire provides direct services across the Metro Atlanta area including Alpharetta, College Park, Cumberland, Hiram, and Marietta. Orchard also provides Consultative Collaboration and Developmental Scaffolding Services to support children and families impacted by attachment disorder around the nation.

Child therapy for attachment disorder is a precise and painstaking process. The child counselor must remain attuned to the child’s underlying developmental processes and emotional distress in order to make progress. If the child therapist misses critical cues, the child counseling may miss the mark and cause the child and family even more distress. That is why Orchard Human Services recommends that parents find a mental health practitioner who has a proven track record and has successfully guided children from the depths of attachment disorder into a space of life satisfaction, personal efficacy, and fulfillment.
