The Littleton Group Home provides intensive clinical, educational, and vocational services to adolescent males who have a history of complex trauma and significant behavioral and mental health issues.
Littleton, MA 01460
The Littleton Group Home works with adolescent males providing social, emotional, educational, and vocational support in a nurturing environment. The program uses the ARC Framework. This model was developed by JRI's Trauma Center which assists youth in developing the internal core strength, building strong positive attachments, self regulation and competency skills. It is a treatment model developed to provide guidance for thoughtful clinical intervention with complexly traumatized youth. LGH provides individual and family therapy that supports young men in identifying their strengths and utilizing them on a daily basis. Our residents attend schools in Littleton and the surrounding communities. Additionaly, LGH has dedicated staff to assist with vocational training and employment opportunities. Our individually tailored Success Plans are designed to be built around a young man's age, educational and cognitive abilities and treatment plans. The program strives to provide young men the skills to live happy, healthy and independent lives.
We have a full time Educational Liaison who works closely with each student's school district to assure proper education placement and services. This is done in tandem with the schools guidance counselors, teaching staff, and administration. The Educational Liaison attends all educational progress and IEP meetings, maintains regular contact with teachers, guidance counselors, educational surrogates, parents, and collateral contacts to help our youth reach their academic goals.
We have a comprehensive Clinical Department composed of a Senior Clinical Director, Program Clinical Director, Clinician, Occupational Therapist, and on site psychiatric services. Our Clinical Team works together to provide our youth with individualized treatment planning, utilizing the most up to date and dynamic treatment approaches. In addition, our clinicians are trained in Neurofeedback, Biofeedback, and the ARC Model of treatment.
The group home is situated on two and half acres, and has an in-ground swimming pool for use during the summer months; outdoor basketball court which is used year round, music studio, and multi purpose rec room. Additionally, youth are able to utilize gym memberships, participate in NYPUM, therapeutic horse back riding and TSY, trauma sensitive yoga.
We have expanded our services to include respite. At times parents, care givers, other providers, or the youth may need short term temporary relief from their day to day environment. Either emergency or planned respite may be available. Our respite allows the youth to participate in all aspects of our daily and weekend programming in a safe nurturing environment.
