Behavior Intervention Program: The program is offered in both 8 and 12 week sessions in both English and Spanish (Familias Felices). The curriculum is delivered to parents individually by past program participants called Peer Mentors. On Saturdays, the program is delivered in a group format. While parents attend training Parent Room children receive services at our Child Center.
Summer Camp Program: A program that mixes educational field trips with developmental intervention and behavior management in a day camp format.
Preschool: TC Scholars is a one of a kind preschool program that fosters an atmosphere of problem solving, social competence, and academic excellence. All of this takes place in a supportive environment embracing differential learning and integrated behavioral strategies. Our structured environment ensures every child actively participates in learning and social interaction – helping to enrich their development.
