The Child:

In addition to his or her individually planned educational program, each child has a treatment plan based on his or her particular needs and problem behaviors. A key element is the relationship between the chld and his or her Treatment Coordinator. That personal relationship helps build positive self-esteem and provides a model for behavior.

The child is also involved in supervised groups where he or she learns to interact with peers. Various kinds of outings provide practice and experience in social skills in the community as well as just plain fun.

The School:

Cascade Child Center has an educational component which is part of the Deschutes County Educational Service District. (E.S.D.). The academic program is entirely individualized to meet the special needs of each child, behavioral as well as academic.

As soon as a child demonstrates the skills to cope with the classroom situation, they can re-enter a public school program in their own school district. As the child develops more coping skills, time in public school is gradually increased.

The Family:

Families are involved in all aspects of treatment planning for their child, as well as participating in family therapy and parent training.
