When a child is struggling with an emotional, behavioral, or developmental diagnosis, it is crucial to provide support to address his or her specific needs.
Child Guidance offers a comprehensive program specifically created for children who struggle with the public school classroom.
Enrollment in our special education classroom is based on reccomendation through the child's Individual Education Plan (IEP).
In addition to special education services, we also staff several schools in the Delaware Valley with an in-school counselor and offer a social After School Program for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder.
