The Program

Trauma affects the young brain in a much different way. Approximately 25% of children experience trauma such as abuse, neglect, a life-threatening accident or community violence (Costello, et all, 2002). Sprouts is designed to help heal from trauma, so that children can gain the skills needed and prevent a lifetime of issues. 

The program is designed to encourage improvement in all areas of child development including social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and school readiness. Our services are also designed to help reduce family stress and the need for specialized services once the child reaches school age. The structured program and interventions include providing the family with child development and behavior management education and support. Read our recent press release.
