The continuum of programs at the Italian Home provide children with the opportunity to enter for one service and possibly be referred to and benefit from many of the other programs offered. This continuity of care is very beneficial to the overall improvement and health of the individual child.
Children's Behavioral Health Initiative
Here at the Italian Home for Children, we provide three of the services under Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI), designed to assist the family unit in a collaborative model that works with the family to create positive changes.
Brighton-Allston Mental Health Association (BAMHA), a program of Italian Home for Children (IHC), offers individual, couples, family, and group therapy treatment as well as psychiatric medication management.
Applied Behavioral Analysis
Our community-based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program assists children with autism and their families with skill acquisition and behavior management that will allow each child to live his/her life as independently as possible.
The Italian Home For Children’s Therapeutic After School/Out-of-School Time Program is designed to meet children’s social, emotional, and behavioral needs in a therapeutic setting.
