Referrals to EC/CT

Mothers and young children are referred to Early Connections/Conexiones Tempranas for a variety of reasons: a new mother may be confronting the challenges of an unresolved history of loss; a baby may be particularly difficult to soothe; or a couple may be coping with significant stress or overwhelming life events even as they begin their parenting journey.

Whatever the origin, the result is a parent-child relationship in distress. EC/CT’s focus on the developing parent-child relationship is supported by significant research showing that babies need safe, secure relationships to build a solid foundation for future learning and social-emotional well-being.

EC/CT services are provided free of charge or on a sliding fee scale.
