Is your child hitting? Kicking? Biting? Refusing to follow directions? Throwing tantrums? Not paying attention? Using foul language?
There Is Hope.
At Behaven Kids, we understand how stressful it is when your child is struggling in child care, in school or at home. We have proven tools and strategies to get your child’s behavior back on track – and bring peace to your home. You are not alone!
The Specialized Day Program is available for all children who are struggling with severe and/or chronic behaviors. It is ideal for children who have been expelled from child care centers or schools. Our skilled, friendly professionals work with you and your child to build positive behaviors in a supportive setting.
Our Day Treatment Program offers a beneficial option for children and adolescents who are in need of highly structured care as they work to overcome symptoms of behavioral and/or mental health concerns. This program offers youth the ability to participate in comprehensive therapeutic treatment interventions, while also adhering to their academic responsibilities.
The Specialized Day Program offers a structured environment that centers on positive reinforcement. Each child who participates in the Specialized Day Program is taught the following skills:
Building Social Skills in Children
- Independent Play
- Asking Permission
- Accepting “No”
- Good, Calm Time-outs
- Saying “Please” and “Thank You”
- Increased Attention Span
- Acceptable Public Behavior
- Academic Readiness
- Potty Training
- Anger Control
Your Involvement Is Key
You know your child best. Together, we will design a plan to meet your child’s individual needs. Here’s how we work together every step of the way:
- Daily staff communication about your child’s progress
- Weekly family therapy services
- 24 hour access to therapists on call
A Lifetime of Support
Support does not stop once your child graduates from our program. We will work with you to develop a transition plan from the Specialized Day Program and conduct on-site visits to your child’s school, home or child care center as needed or requested. We are here to support the success of your child at home, in school and in the community!
What Clients Are Saying
"I am a CASA for a child who has attended this program, actually twice, and honestly this place CAN and WILL work miracles. They truly believe in every child and I honestly think that every state should have multiple locations. There are just not enough of these amazing institutions, or the amazing people that work in them and work with these kids to have such a positive effect on their lives."
"My biggest fear was that there was something wrong with my child mentally and coming to Behaven Kids was not going to help. I see now nothing is wrong with my child and my child just needed to be taught a different way”
“I love the individual and family therapy. If my daughter is getting off track, all she needs is a good talk with mom and her therapist and she regains focus”
“If I can give advice, it is “Go Now!” I am so happy I got a handle on my daughter’s behavior while she was young.”
“The Staff is amazing”
“My daughter had a rough start at Behaven and I questioned if this was the right choice. I now see that I didn’t need to be worried at all. She has graduated the program and is back at her regular daycare. The staff at her other daycare is so impressed with the changes she made to her behavior. She even tells her teachers there are other kids at the daycare that need to go to Behaven and learn to be good. She has gained so much respect for others and is so much more aware of how her behavior affects other people. I am so thankful for Behaven Kids and would recommend anyone having trouble with their kids’ behavior to call Behaven Kids!”
“It takes a village to raise a child, and Behaven is the village I want to be in!”
“My Biggest fear was that Behaven Kids would not help and/or would make things worse. It was hard at first, but with weeks of consistency from everyone, my son, is doing better than I could have ever hoped.”
