The Child Program is designed to support the unique needs of children aged 6 to 12 years. The program is designed to assist children with the following:

  • Emotional dysregulation
  • Poor impulse control, hyperactivity
  • Dangerous behaviors
  • Cognitive rigidity; lack of social skills
  • Depression, sadness, hopelessness
  • Persistent worry or panic attacks
  • School refusal
  • Fire-starting
  • Prolonged bed-wetting

Treatment involves resolving the symptoms leading to hospitalization, crisis planning, and engaging the family in the appropriate continuing care needs.
