Specialized Day Program

Is your child hitting? Kicking? Biting? Refusing to follow directions? Throwing tantrums? Not paying attention? Using foul language?

There’s hope.
At Behaven Kids, we understand how stressful it is when your child is struggling in child care, in school or at home. We have proven tools to get your child’s behavior back on track – and bring peace to your home.

You are not alone! In our experience working with many children over the years, we’ve found that 2 of every 10 young children have behavior issues severe enough for our Specialized Day Program.

The Specialized Day Program is available for all children ages 18 months to 8 years who are struggling with severe and/or chronic behavior problems. It is ideal for children who have been expelled from child care centers or schools. Our skilled, friendly professionals work with you and your child to build positive behaviors in a supportive setting.

Our program was created by child behavior experts for quick results. Most children graduate within 3 months!

Your child will enjoy a fun, exciting preschool environment with daily crafts and weekly themes. Most important, each child who participates in the Specialized Day Program is taught the following skills:

  • Sharing
  • Independent Play
  • Eating
  • Sleeping
  • Asking Permission
  • Listening
  • Accepting “No”
  • Good, Calm Time-outs
  • Saying “Please” and “Thank you”
  • Increased Attention Span
  • Acceptable Public Behavior (such as in grocery stores, restaurants and church)
  • Academic Readiness
  • Potty Training
  • Anger Control


Your Involvement Is Key
You know your child best. Together, we’ll design a plan to meet your child’s individual needs. Here’s how we work together every step of the way:

  • Daily staff visits about your child’s progress
  • Secure online access to information on your child’s behavior and activities
  • Weekly family counseling
  • We have 24-hour on-call availability if you have questions or experience a stressful situation at home


A Lifetime of Support
Support doesn’t stop once your child graduates from our program. We will work with you to develop a transition plan from the Specialized Day Program and conduct on-site visits to your child’s school, home or child care center as needed or requested. We are here to support the success of your child at home, in school and in the community!
