As part of its effort to promote healthy social and emotional development, The Children’s Collective, Inc. offers a Prevention and Early Intervention program for children from infancy to age five. Staffed by a licensed Clinical Psychologist with interns and externs from local clinical training programs, PEI identifies and addresses challenging behavior which often results from childhood stress and trauma.
The program conducts psychosocial and behavioral assessments to identify moderate developmental delay and/or potential behavior problems. It then provides behavioral interventions, including socialization groups and play therapy, to promote healthy development.
The program also works closely with child development teachers and parents to identify needed resources for the children.
