Tanager Place works with area school districts to make evidence-based treatment available to students struggling with mental and behavioral challenges outside of the home. We begin by assessing the student’s needs, then develop an individualized treatment plan to help them reach their goals. Services are conveniently offered at school, eliminating the need for caregivers to arrange transportation. Tanager Place requires insurance for services and accepts Medicaid and most private insurance. Families are responsible for any co-pay that insurance does not cover.

Involvement from teachers, staff and parents gives students the best chance for success. Our programming supports teachers and school officials with training, coaching, mentoring, and consultation and provides parent outreach to connect families with resources in their community.
