Project Description
The purpose of this project is to provide mental health consultation to child care staff who have children in their classrooms that are having issues related to social-emotional development or behavior issues. Mental health practitioners will provide consultation to the classroom teachers using Positive Behavior Supports as their primary model. They will also provide support to the parents of the children. UCEDD staff will evaluate the efficacy of the program.
