Flourish was created out of the belief that our little ones should not be suspended or expelled from their daycare center or school due to a lack of understanding or inability to properly address their behavior.  We are certain that providing compassionate, supportive, and consistent interventions will help children thrive and be successful. 

 

We offer a unique approach to care and understand that it is hard for parents or teachers to allow someone in to help. We are committed to providing excellent client and family support by involving all key individuals in a child’s life; caregivers, siblings, teachers, etc.

 

How do I know when to worry or if my child really needs help?

As the person who has been caring for this child since day one, you know your child better than anyone else.  As your child grows, it is normal for him or her to have problems from time to time, especially during the times of sadness, anger, and frustration. However, if you are feeling overly concerned, have questions, or notice that these times are lasting longer than usual, it is time to reach out for help.


Do you take insurance?

Yes, Flourish accepts Aetna, CareFirst, Cigna, Humana, United Healthcare, and Maryland Medicaid. For others, we are considered an out of network provider. Depending on the type of insurance, we can provide a statement for your insurance carrier for reimbursement. Cash, debit, and credit cards are accepted forms of payment as well. 


If I work with you, can you promise that the school will stop calling me?

No, we cannot promise that.  However, we will work with you, teachers and other school staff to develop strategies to better manage the concerning behavior.  If we all work together, hopefully the amount of phone calls  you receive from the school about your child's behavior will decrease.  


Sessions usually occur on a weekly basis. It can take an average of 10 sessions to resolve problems, however, each child is different.  Some children may progress faster while others may have more serious or ongoing problems that needs more attention and may take longer to resolve.  Regardless of the time, services are most effective when parents, family member, caretaker, or school staff is actively involved in the treatment process.  

How long will it take?


How does this work?

Step 1         Let's Talk

  • Whether you are a parent or child care provider, the first step is to reach out via phone or email to have your questions answered. During this time, it will be determined the next best step for the child and provide options for you as the parent or educator.

Step 2        Let's Meet

  • We schedule a time to meet to discuss your concerns in more detail. This meeting will usually consist of an evaluation to gain a better understanding of the child's strengths and weaknesses as well as determine a set of goals to address the challenges.

Step 3       Let's Flourish

  • This phase is all about collaboration and watching the child progress. Let's work together to ensure that your child's needs are being met.
