Our Mission

Our mission is to assist and support children with emotional and behavioral issues

by providing a special education day school and a system of child and family-focused mental health services.

Our Programs & Services

Educational, Outpatient and Milieu, Psychological and Developmental, Community and Home-Based Services

The Community Child Guidance Clinic School was established in 1974 and offers state approved education and intensive therapeutic services. We serve children ages 3 to 15 years of age with varying academic levels, learning abilities, and behavioral and emotional issues that may impede their ability to learn. A great advantage to our program is the individual attention and stability our children receive due to the small class sizes and high staff to student ratio; currently about 2:1.

Outpatient and Milieu services provide a wide range of diagnostic and treatment services, many of which are specialized programs that target specific problems. Examples of some of the programs offered include trauma services, Evidence-Based Practice Models such as ARC and MATCH-ADTC, and NorthStar, which is an intensive outpatient program for children ages 5 to 12.

Community and Home-Based services work with families in their homes and communities in order to create a working partnership with families to improve overall functioning. This includes our In-Home Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Services (IICAPS) program.
