Gardite’s son struggled with Autism Spectrum Disorder, aggression, and effectively communicating his feelings. She was referred to the Guidance Center for help. With support from our Family After School Program, Gardite’s son learned basic coping skills that enabled him to get through transitions more smoothly. She describes The Guidance Center as a life-saver! Not only that, but Gardite is now employed by Riverside. As a Family Partner, Gardite helps parents of other children with emotional or behavioral health needs by teaching them how to navigate the child-serving systems, identify community supports, develop contacts with support groups, and more.

We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:
"I can't say enough wonderful things about the Newton Outreach Program. Many other therapists were unable to break through my son’s strong, protective shell. Quickly and quietly, Marianne gained his trust and she became part of all of our lives. You helped us gain wisdom and taught us how to appreciate the wonderful aspects of life while accepting the challenges."
