How We Can Help



Before making any recommendations, we carefully collect and evaluate information about problematic behaviors as well as temperament, interests, and family needs.





We meet with families from all over the US and present residential treatment options with explanations of how each will serve their child's needs. We will answer your questions and provide information on next steps.



Our team is highly qualified to evaluate residential programs. We also help with the admissions process. It’s not enough to help you find the right program, we want to ensure placement.


Once your child is placed in a program, we follow-up with their care team, as well as with you the parents. We are able to help you and your child adjust to the change and problem solve any difficulties that arise.

  4. Following-up – Guiding your entire family through the transition, including following up and making sure your child is thriving in their new environment.
