Truancy and Delinquency Prevention Partnership


When you find out that your child is:

  • Not attending school
  • Becoming chronically late and underprepared for school and/or
  • Exhibiting behavior problems in school

Where do you turn to help get your family back on track?

For over 19 years, the Truancy and Delinquency Prevention Partnership has been helping families like yours by teaching them the skills they need to successfully return to school, stay safe, and reach their potential academically and emotionally.

We know your family is unique and our Truancy program takes that into consideration with everything we do. Each family’s treatment program is specifically designed by a clinician to meet your specific needs.

How does Truancy work?

When your family enters the program, you will be assigned to a Truancy Clinician. The clinician acts as your advocate for appropriate educational services and in the justice system as needed. Our clinicians are champions at identifying areas in need of support, connecting with resources and advocating for your family.

The program hours vary depending on your need and availability. Therapy occurs in many places, ranging from your home, the school, and the community. We will work with you to help your family build support systems and reach your  potential for independent success.

Services are provided at no cost to you. Insurance is not needed.

In Delaware County, referrals can come from parents, Children and Youth Services, schools, judges, police, or juvenile court.

In Montgomery Country, referrals only come from the Office of Children and Youth. Referrals to the prevention program for middle school students in the Norristown Area School District come from the school district.
