Why is my child acting this way?
And what can i do about it?

Is your child acting defiantly or being disruptive? Does he or she seem inattentive or to be experiencing anxiety or depression?

These are among the most common childhood problems we see at Alta. The good news is they’re treatable — usually without medication. And the cost of treatment is usually covered by Medicaid and most health insurances.

What is best about Alta is that the staff are very friendly and nice and make my son comfortable.

I feel it’s a good place, and my child’s counselor is meeting both of our needs.

I am glad that I chose Alta. My children are way better now.

Learning there is no way to be a perfect parent, but a million ways to be a good one!

This is an awesome concept for parenting…it just makes sense!

I wish someone from my son’s school would have recommended Alta sooner.
