This post is one of our Family Friday series when we give you a peek into our family treatment homes. Each Friday, we’ll show you a picture, along with a description from one of our treatment parents. Learn more about our unique treatment model for children with reactive attachment disorder and meet our treatment families.
“When *Nick shovels the walk for our household, he learns how to contribute to the family. He’s also learning life skills and is building his self-esteem as a contributor to the family – something most of the kids in our program lack due to early neglect and abuse. While these are good lessons for all kids, they’re especially important for a child struggling with reactive attachment disorder.”
-Jan Barber, therapeutic treatment mom at the Institute for Attachment and Child Development
