The Matilda Theiss Therapeutic Nursery and Preschool

UPMC Content 3

Diagnosis and treatment are individually geared to each child’s particular needs. At Matilda Theiss, this means that assessment and treatment modalities are designed to be appropriate for young children.

For young children, we believe that treatment is most effective when provided within natural settings and includes both child-oriented and family-oriented activities and interventions.

For young children, it is during play that behaviors are learned, practiced, and tested. Therefore, individualized, child-centered, and family-focused behavioral health treatment is delivered within — or in conjunction with — a stimulating, naturalistic, early-learning classroom environment.

These supplementary clinical services are utilized in conjunction with the therapeutic classroom milieu and include:

  • Individualized behavior plans and reinforcement systems
  • Play therapy
  • Dyadic therapy
  • Family psychotherapy
  • Parenting education
  • Family support
  • Medication management

Therapeutic programming is available five days a week,

8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
