Program Description: Serving preschool age children, Building Blocks provides caring, therapeutic intervention for preschoolers who have struggled with behavioral and emotional difficulties. The program’s therapeutic milieu incorporates a careful balance of structure and free play that supports each child in building a bridge to greater emotional stability and in preparing to attend mainstream kindergarten. Each child in our program has an individual therapist and receives individual play-based therapy, group therapy, and collateral family support and/or therapy.
