What We Do

The language of a child struggling with complex emotions can be easily misinterpreted. Anger, defiance or isolation can mask true feelings of frustration, sadness, or fear. ANDRUS specializes in working with children who struggle to communicate and process the emotional impacts of their experiences. Some have been injured by the circumstance of neglect, abuse, poverty or violence. Others wrestle with the challenges of living with mental illness and autism. Through our innovative programs, highly personalized services, superior training and research, ANDRUS enables children and families begin to heal, and learn a new language of hope.
