The KidsConnect at the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA is a short-term integrated day treatment program for young children (ages 2-6) who have been diagnosed with, or may have, autism, developmental disabilities, and behavior disorders.

The KidsConnect specializes in treatment for:

  • Classroom interaction
  • Toddlers and preschool children from 2-6 six years of age who would benefit from a structured early childhood environment
  • Children who are on the autism spectrum and/or present with developmental disabilities or other severe behavior problems requiring intensive treatment.
  • Children who have tried less intensive outpatient treatment and been unsuccessful, or do not have access to these services in their community.
  • Parents who are willing to actively participate in the program and transport their child to UCLA.

KidsConnect will:

  • Evaluate and treat children in a structured, individualized program
  • Develop individual educational, behavioral, and social intervention plans for each child
  • Provide family intervention to assist parents in understanding their child’s needs and manage their child’s behavior
  • Communicate with school districts and regional centers to facilitate the child’s transition into appropriate educational placements and community services
