Do you know a 6-8 year old who is hyper-active, struggling to focus, unable to sit still, acting aggressively or having a hard time making friends? The Incredible Years Program at Child Guidance can help!
What is The Incredible Years?
The Incredible Years is an evidence-based program that aims to prevent and treat young children's behavior problems and promote social, emotional, and academic competence. Through 18 weekly group sessions, we offer practical behavioral health support for children and caregivers. Parents meet with their peers and a therapist, while children participate in a children’s group session with a clinician. Parent sessions focus on developing effective interaction skills and behavior management while children learn appropriate social behavior and emotional regulation from Dina the Dinosaur, Wally, Molly, and Tiny the Turtle!
In addition to weekly sessions, the program includes therapeutic phone check-ins and parent-to-parent support. Dinner and childcare for siblings is included free of charge! The Incredible Years has been proven to help caregivers support children with developing social and emotional skills at home and school, works with caregivers to help develop plans for children to improve in school, treat and prevent children’s oppositional and aggressive behavior.
How is The Incredible Years funded?
The Incredible Years is covered by most commercial insurance and medical assistance. Please reach out to see if this program would be a good fit for your family!
