Wediko Children’s Services is committed to serving children and families - please read below!!
The one thing that all families who find themselves at Wediko have in common is that they love their son/daughter and they have realized that as parent(s) they need assistance helping their son/daughter. Aside from the love they have for their son/daughter, families come to Wediko with a range of strengths and challenges.
The students that come to Wediko are similar in that they struggle to find success at home, in school, or with friends. They need structure, consistency, and compassion to learn the skills they need to be successful. Although at times they do not show it, they want to be successful, they want to learn, they get excited when they do something they know will make their parent(s) proud.
Since 1934, Wediko's work with children has shown us that if we want to help children succeed, we need to help the people who the child spends most of his/her time with, the most important people in the child’s life, family first and school second. Family therapy is an important part of Wediko's residential programs.
