What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Behavioral Intervention

Behavioral Intervention is offered in both
8 and 12 week sessions in both English and Spanish (the Spanish language
component is often referred to Familias Felices). The program is delivered in group sessions for working parents and
one-on-one sessions delivered through trained past program participants called
Peer Mentors. While parents are being serviced in the Parent Room children
receive services at our Child Center.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Tuesday's Child is determined to ensure young children enter school ready to learn and that their families are prepared to parent, advocate and set their children up for success. We focus on working with families experiencing behavior issues in their young children. We work with families of typically developing children to those addressing Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Anxiety and other mental health challenges.

We believe that by addressing problem behavior in the home - that we can normalize appropriate behavior into schools, community agencies and casual relationships between children's peers.

Tuesday's Child focuses on programming aimed at both parents and children. We are the only agency provide service simultaneously to both parties to increase a child's compliance, participation, socialization and time on task. Parents are enrolled in an 8-12 week Behavioral Intervention program to learn the proper tips, scripts and techniques to modify their children's behavior by using praise as a behavior modification and using positive reinforcement. Children are placed in peer appropriate classrooms where those scripts and techniques are introduced and reinforced over the duration of the program.

Tuesday's Child has been providing high-quality, evidence-based Behavioral Intervention for over 30 years. We started as a research program based at Children's Memorial Hospital and funded by the Department of Education in 1981. A dedicated staff of 15 works tirelessly to provide these services to families in need. Staff consist of 2 Doctorate level Psychologist, 2 Master's level counselors and several staff that have completed the program themselves.

Tuesday's Child continues to meet its goals every year. Our progress remains astounding. Sadly, like many nonprofit organizations - our efforts remain continually. The rate of children experiencing behavior issues and mental health challenges continues to increase. Our efforts can provide solutions for families - but no solution has been discovered to eliminate these challenges.
