The School of Education heartily congratulates the Behavior Clinic, which received a $45,000 grant from the Assurant Health Foundation and a $28,000 gift from the Exchange Club of Southeasern Wisconsin to Prevent Child Abuse for the 2008-2009 academic year.
This three year funding from Assurant Health will be used to support the work of the nine graduate students who work at the clinic as well as purchase needed materials.
The Exchange Club gift will underwrite the salary for a doctoral student who will serve as Clinic Supervisor during 2008-2009. This is the fourth year that the Clinic has received funding from the Exchange Club.
The Behavior Clinic offers free mental health services for children under the age of five who are experiencing significant behavior and emotional problems. In-home services for families are provided up to twice per week for up to 12 weeks.
