Day Treatment

Washburn Center is one of only a few preschool and early elementary day treatment programs in Minnesota.This intensive program provides early intervention and helps children ages three to nine in the Minneapolis school district develop the social, emotional and behavioral skills needed to be successful in school and at home.

In addition to the child attending therapeutic group sessions, clinicians offer pre- and after-care services, group and family therapy and psychiatric services as needed.

Children continue to attend their community school or preschool for a half day. Day Treatment staff collaborates closely with the child’s teachers and parents to ensure the ongoing success of the child and to help the child transfer lessons learned in Washburn Center’s therapeutic group to their traditional school setting.
