Altacare

What:

The Altacare program and Irving work in partnership to provide a range of services to children and families seeking assistance with difficulties in their lives. Our home base is right in Irving school and we are here every school day.

Who:

We work with children whose struggles with life challenges cause difficulties in relationships, schoolwork, behaviors, self-esteem, and/or general well-being. Such life challenges might include divorce, loss of a loved one, family illness, learning disabilities, family substance abuse, peer and relationship issues, etc. We help with issues including making friends, grief, anger management, impulse control, study skills, bullying, positive self-expression, character development, conflict resolution, self-esteem, goal-setting and others.

Why:

With assistance in these areas, it is our hope that your child can feel more confident and successful. Alleviating stressors in children’s lives leads to better academic achievement better concentration in class, better relationships with others, and ultimately a better learning experience. Our services are provided at the school and during the school day to help alleviate transportation or scheduling issues. Our services are available to all children with several ways to make it affordable. Our services are free to children with Medicaid and at low or no cost for children with CHIP. We are also able to provide services through private insurance or on a sliding fee scale.

How:

You can reach us directly at 522-6569. We look forward to hearing from you!
