“I’ve tried everything and nothing seems to work with her!”
“He never sits still! I can’t get him to pay attention long enough to do anything.”
“He doesn’t play like other kids do. It seems like he’s in his own little world.”
“She’s so demanding! I have to be with her every minute or she whines and cries.”
“He’s out of control. I’m afraid he’ll hurt somebody when he starts hitting and throwing things.”
Children’s Day Treatment is designed to meet the mental health and developmental needs of children between the ages of 3 and 5 who are exhibiting problematic behaviors.
Children’s Day Treatment meets Monday through Thursday from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Children participate in structured play time; group activities; and creative activities such as art, music, drama, and movement. Children also receive instruction on pre-academic concepts and skills.
We offer a weekly parent support group focused on the stages of social and emotional development of young children and parenting techniques. Parents also receive helpful support from others facing similar challenges.
Our specialized programming is designed to increase your child’s self esteem and social competence, foster the development of academic skills, improve your child’s communication with other children and adults, as well as assist you in managing troubling behaviors. Children’s Day Treatment professionally trained staff will work with your child’s therapist to develop behavior management plans and explore ways to improve family relationships. They are also available to provide consultation with your child’s daycare and/or school as needed.
Interested in learning more about Children’s Day Treatment? A 60-minute parent interview with one of our professional staff will determine if your child meets the criteria for this program and will benefit from day treatment services.
We accept most insurance and Medicaid. Other convenient payment options are available.
