Who is eligible for this service?
In general, we support children under 7 years of age whose parent(s) or legal guardian reside in the Region of Peel. These children may:

  • have a hard time managing and communicating their feelings.
 
What do we do?
We help our clients develop the appropriate coping skills suited for their individual needs.  Our clinicians serve our clients' needs by building on family strengths. Following a comprehensive assessment, our multi-disciplinary team will work collaboratively with families to create a plan to develop coping and relationship skills with treatment specific to the child’s and family’s needs.
 
Treatment may include:
  • Setting goals specific to the child’s needs within the context of the family system,
  • Support for parents in the home, skills training or group services,
  • Advocacy and collaboration with other service providers, and
  • Psychological and psychiatric assessments and consultation.
