Happiness House offers a variety of support services for preschool children who are enrolled in our Early Childhood Educational Services Programs. Children may receive counseling from a certified, licensed school psychologist as part of their Individual Educational Plan (I.E.P.). Happiness House Programs also offer parenting skill counseling as part of an I.E.P. along with parent support groups. The Preschool Child Development Program (P.C.D.P.) is available to help children improve social skill development in a play setting. The children work with a P.C.D.P. Associate on the identification and appropriate expression of various emotions, reciprocal and cooperative play, following directions as well as positive ways to channel anger and frustration.
