Sometimes, children struggle to get along with their peers, or may not be able to make friends. They may have difficulty acting appropriately at school or in the community. These problems may become more obvious or serious as children grow and develop.

The Program

The staff in our Pathways program understand children’s emotional and behavioral struggles. Our social therapy model is designed to help youth overcome their individual challenges and become happily involved in their community environments.

The Pathways program is focused on children in kindergarten through 12th grade.

Working with parents, caregivers, and health providers, our staff members create care plans for each child. Because families may feel isolated by their child’s issues, we offer monthly family dinner nights as well as a parent support group.

Our dynamic after-school program offers a variety of opportunities for young participants:

  • Snack and homework time
  • Individual and group therapies
  • Adventure and outdoor excursions
  • Cooking and Arts & Crafts classes
  • Day trips
  • Community service and vocational training
