Bright Beginning’s services are dedicated exclusively to families experiencing homelessness. The Health and Therapeutic Services Program addresses families’ wellness and identifies mental health issues and developmental delays early so that children can develop with confidence and be ready for kindergarten. The therapeutic service team includes clinical psychologists, occupational therapists and speech/language pathologists who work with children, teachers and parents to provide in-service training, classroom interventions and ongoing consultations.
