Just like adults, children face complex brain health challenges.
Heart of Iowa can navigate children and families through the process of finding help to prevent future issues and lessen the impact of current struggles.
Resource referral and prevention
Developmental milestones, trauma and environmental stressors can all affect the brain health of children and teens. No matter the need, we can connect your child and family to programs and providers close to home that help resolve and prevent brain health issues.
Long-term brain health issues require coordinated care. We work alongside families as they require changes in services and navigate insurance processes. In some cases, we may provide funding.
We partner with local schools and providers to ensure that children have access to therapists through their school districts. Additionally, HICS organizes hands-on educational opportunities within schools to teach children and teens about common brain health symptoms and struggles.
