Severely neglected 4 year old “becomes a different child” after 6 months of our early childhood mental health specialized services.
“Brianna,” is a 4 year old foster child, who was removed from her mother’s care due to severe neglect, while her father was in jail. She was referred to our early childhood mental health specialized services within our Families in Transition (FIT) program as a result of displaying symptoms that limited her engagement with others and impacted her social-emotional development.
After 6 months of receiving dyadic therapy, where the therapist works with the child and caregiver together, her foster mother reported that “she is a different kid.” Brianna is more engaged, more expressive, playful and has been doing much better in pre-school. The therapist has also been meeting with Brianna’s biological mother mom to support the reunification process. The philosophy we work from encourages collaboration with all providers in this little girl’s life and has engaged all available family members – biological and foster family to create a supportive community of care to put Brianna’s development back on track.
