Infant Massage - a way to experience the way your baby communicates. A certified instructor will guide and teach how to massage your baby. Research shows babies who are massaged, 1) may sleep deeper and longer, 2) spend more time active and alert for learning, 3) increase bonding and attachments to their parents, and 4) improves elimination.

WIC PLUS+ - a child development specialist meets with you to promote healthy physical, cognitive, and social-emotional growth of young children by providing information and guidance on topics of interest to parents. Developmental screenings are utilized to determine a baby/young child's strengths and weaknesses in order to provide parents with age appropriate developmental activities to work on at home. Written materials are provided on topics such as toilet training and sleep issues. Each child is given a developmentally appropriate book through our Reach Out and Read program.

*PCIT is an evidenced-based treatment model with specific, step-by-step coached sessions that include both the parent/caregiver and the child. The program was developed primarily for children who are exhibiting behavior problems that may be considered beyond normal for their developmental age. These children are often described as defiant, uncontrollable, overactive, attention seeking, impulsive, etc. The goals of treatment are to:

    • Improve the quality of the parent-child relationship;
    • Decrease child behavior problems and increase social skills;
    • Increase confidence in parenting skills, including positive discipline; and
    • Decrease parenting stress.
