Programs Services

For Parents and Families

At PACT, we strongly believe that parents, families and caregivers should play an integral role in their children’s treatment and care. We are committed to working closely with you and other caregivers to provide you with information and training on how you can best foster your child’s developmental progress. We are also aware that many parents are struggling with the multiple challenges of raising children with special needs while, at the same time, meeting the needs of other family members. All of our programs offer counseling, information and assistance in obtaining services for you and your child and assistance in helping your child transition to other programs when they leave PACT.

Philosophy of Care

PACT is committed to providing high-quality, state-of-the-art services for the young children and families we serve each year through our programs: World of Care and The Therapeutic Nursery. Through ongoing staff training and continuous interactions with other providers, PACT keeps abreast of the latest techniques for helping these vulnerable children get a good start in life.
