Ages 6-12 years. Children’s After School is a closed referral program, and accepts referrals through DMH and DCF only. CASP is a voluntary, community based, therapeutic program for children ages 6 to 12 with emotional, behavioral, and mental health needs. The program utilizes a structured program and behavior management system. At CASP, children participate in therapeutic groups which focus on developing social skills and adaptive coping skills. A primary goal of the program is to support and maintain children with their families in their home communities. To do this, each child is assigned a Child and Family Advocate to provide case management services and coordinate care between the program, family, and other providers. The program operates Monday through Friday from 2:00pm until 4:45pm during the school year. CASP is also open during school vacation weeks and the summer. During those times, it is in operation Monday through Friday from 10:00am until 2:00pm.
