    Teamwork: We work as a team with you and your child. We understand that parents and caregivers know their children best.

    Understanding the whole child: We look at all areas of your child's development (physical, emotional and social). We work together as a team of professionals from many disciplines.

    Least restrictive care: We actively work to help children be successful in less restrictive environments.

    Problem-solving and collaboration: We teach children tools to help them resolve conflict in healthier ways and to help them make safer choices.

    Support of diversity:We understand that families come in many forms and from diverse backgrounds. We respect differences in child rearing beliefs and view diversity as an important part of treatment.
