Children diagnosed with behavioral disorders
Young children diagnosed with behavioral disorders, development delays, and/or autism, experience severe chronic problems and major life difficulties.
Early and aggressive interventions
Early and aggressive intervention at the right time during pediatric brain development is crucial in determining long term developmental outcome. Studies have repeatedly shown that the earlier you start helping children with any developmental needs, the better their outcomes.
The first five (5) years of life are crucial to brain development in children, and many long term skills are established during this time period. This is a critical window of opportunity to make the most difference in long term outcome! The main areas of development that occur during this time period include physical and motor development, cognitive development, communication and language, social and emotional development, and adaptive skills development.
Integrated intensive outpatient treatment program for young children
Early Childhood Treatment Center (ECTC) is a short-term, integrated intensive outpatient treatment program for young children ages 2 to 6. It provides evaluation and treatment for young children in a structured setting with an individualized program. This is an alternative to inpatient treatment or a partial hospital program. The program develops individual psychological, behavioral and social interventions for each child. It also provides family intervention to assist parents in understanding their child’s needs and manage their behaviors. The program also communicates with the primary care physician, school districts and regional centers to facilitate the child’s transition back into appropriate educational placement and community services.
