Every behavior is an attempt to express a need or achieve a result. Children with more complex needs usually have more complicated behaviors.

When the challenges pile up, it takes dedication and skill to identify what a child’s behavior is telling us. Research shows that some interventions are proven to work, so we focus on using those interventions. By analyzing the results, we can modify the treatment as necessary to overcome whatever barrier is interfering with a child’s development.
Pace programs provide a full range of mental health services to meet the complex needs of children with emotional and behavioral challenges that interfere with their ability to succeed in a public school environment. Ranging from service coordination with community mental health providers to full school based partial hospitalization services, Pace believes that the integration of mental health services into the child’s most natural environment, a school classroom, is an effective way to ensure that children develop functional coping mechanisms.
