The Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CADD) offers SafeQuest, a partial hospital program tailored to the needs of its patients. The after-school program is for children ages 10 to 17 who have autism spectrum disorders or developmental disabilities along with co-occurring emotional or behavioral challenges.
CADD SafeQuest runs 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, providing treatment that emphasizes building social and emotion-regulation skills. The program consists of individual and group therapy in person, and family sessions via video conference. Children typically participate for 4 to 6 weeks.
Referrals come from a variety of sources including pediatricians, other providers, schools, or parents can self-refer. For more information, please call Kids’ Link at 1-855-543-5465 (1-855-KID-LINK).
