Extended Day Treatment (EDT) is a therapeutically intensive program that supports children in developing and practicing social and coping skills that will help them to be more successful in their schools, homes and communities.
During the 6-month program, children work on individualized goals and build skills in daily peer groups. They develop conflict resolution skills and learn to express their feelings in healthy, productive ways.
Family involvement is critical. Families receive support in connecting with schools and the community to identify opportunities and build a foundation for success. Group, individual and family therapy, case management and medication management is also provided as needed.
EDT is open to children ages 5-14 living in Hartford and surrounding towns, and ages 5-12 living in Meriden, Manchester and surrounding towns. Eligible children exhibit behaviors that are interfering with their ability to be successful in school, in the community or at home, including aggression, distractibility, difficulty making and maintaining positive peer relationships. Children must meet criteria for a mental health diagnosis upon assessment.
