Therapeutic Day Care Celebrates 10-year Anniversary

December 9, 2009

Long before the importance of early childhood development became common knowledge, CII’s Day Treatment Intensive program was providing therapeutic day care for young children with severe behavioral problems. Over the past decade, the agency has helped thousands of troubled children and their families through specialized assessment and treatment, and parent/caregiver support. In December, staff and former clients came together to celebrate the significant impact the services have made in their lives.

“Our preschool day treatment services have a unique role in the care of very young children who have experienced neglect, abuse and abandonment,” says Dr. Lukas Jaeggi, CII’s Regional Director of Early Childhood Services. “It’s often a place of last resort to families who often cannot find help due to the severity of their children’s behavioral and emotional problems. At CII, the children are immersed in a healing experience that can transform their mistrust and despair into an attitude of hope, and moments of joy.”
