Providence Kids First Program
The Kids First Program at Providence provides therapy services to students and their families in the school setting. As a state licensed Comprehensive School and Community Treatment (CSCT) program, Providence currently partners with the Belgrade School District to place Kids First teams in each school. Providence plans to expand into other school districts in the future. Each team is comprised of a clinician and behavior specialist who provide individual, family, and group therapy, as well as behavior skill building.
What is it?
The Kids First program at Providence works with students who struggle with past trauma, emotional regulation, and peer and relationship challenges that make it difficult to focus on school.
Therapists and behavior specialists help students understand and express emotions and learn new skills to help them perform academically to the best of their abilities. Students learn social skills to help develop strong, meaningful friendships that contribute to an overall sense of well being.
How Do I Enroll?
Referrals for this program are generated by school counselors, principals, teachers, or another faculty member at the school. If you are interested in requesting an evaluation to see if your child qualifies, contact your child’s school counselor.
The Kids First Program at Providence works with student’s health insurance companies to pay for services. Financial aid is available for students without insurance.
