Who We Help

For over 50 years, The Children’s Center has served as a beacon of hope for families across Utah. Our agency has evolved to become a multifaceted organization skilled at helping children and families. Our clinical team is trained to provide professional, compassionate care for every family that seeks our help.

Parents often wonder when it’s time to reach out for help. The Children’s Center’s clinical team provides care for parents and caregivers who are concerned about toileting accidents, sleep and appetite issues, and early speech and language delays. In addition, we see children who are struggling to manage their emotions and exhibit prolonged temper outbursts; children who are unable to get along with peers in child care or preschool, or families struggling to get back on track during or after a separation or divorce. 

It’s important to understand that all young children exhibit difficult behaviors from time to time, but it may be time to get help if:

  • You find that you are frustrated by your child's behavior and find that parenting is more distressing that pleasurable.
  • Your child's care center or preschool teacher is often talking about problems your child has during the day.
  • Your child has been exposed to a trauma such as violence in the home or community, physical or sexual abuse, neglect or the traumatic loss of a parent or caregiver.
  • You are concerned that your child may be exhibiting symptoms of a psychiatric condition such as ADHD, depression, or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
  • Your family is struggling with a separation or divorce.

We recognize that bringing a young child to The Children's Center for treatment is a very personal and challenging decision. At The Children's Center, our clinical team is trained to provide professional, compassionate care for every family who seeks our help. By listening carefully to your concerns, we will determine if your child and your family would benefit from our services.
