Therapeutic Day Treatment

Therapeutic Day Treatment serves children and youth, ages 3-21, with behavioral or emotional issues that are impairing their functioning at school and who are in need of daily and intensive intervention to address these issues. Common issues in children and youth who need TDT are anxiety, depression, disruptive and oppositional behaviors, hyperactivity and impulsivity, and lack of age-appropriate anger management or social skills. TDT aims to help children and youth who experience these issues by using behavioral plans, coordination with parents and school staff, psychoeducation, and skills training. The program uses individual and small group sessions and support throughout the school day to help the child or youth meet his or her goals as well as those identified by his or her parents and teachers. All program staff meet state guidelines for mental health providers and use an evidence-based curriculum provided by Lions Quest.

Medicaid, FAMIS, are primary funding sources and require a  VICAP Assessment to determine eligibility.  

Martha is the Senior Director of Adult Development Services for Region Ten Community Services Board.
