FAM's Therapeutic Mentoring services are provided to youth (under the age of 21) in any setting where the youth resides, such as the home (including foster homes and therapeutic foster homes), and in other community settings such as school, child care centers, respite settings, and other culturally and linguistically appropriate community settings.
Therapeutic Mentoring services include supporting, coaching, and training the youth in:
relating appropriately to other children, adolescents, and adults
These services help to ensure the youth's success in navigating various social contexts, learning new skills, and making functional progress, while the Therapeutic Mentor offers supervision of these interactions and engages the youth in discussions about strategies for effective handling of peer and adult interactions.
