Timothy’s Story

Timothy was a 10-year-old boy who came to the Half Day Intensive Program at Nelson Youth Centres with the world on his shoulders. Due to several significant outbursts of anger and aggression during the school year, he was at risk of being removed from his school and parents and school staff alike were struggling to support him. When Tim first started attending NYC, he had multiple emotional outbursts each week which often took upwards of an hour to de-escalate and have Tim arrive at an emotional space where he felt ready to re-join the group.

The program was able to help Tim learn skills and strategies to regulate his emotions and express his frustration and anger in healthier ways. His parents and school staff observed many positive changes. Tim reported he was more in control of his thoughts and emotions. He also expressed pride in the progress he had made. Tim graduated from NYC with new friends and many new skills he would be able to use for the rest of his life.
