I have been visiting the Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood from the day of its groundbreaking ceremony on and it's fair to say that the Center has been doing groundbreakig work every since! As a psychiatrist who is also trained at a child analyst, I recognize the unique value that the Lucy Danierls Center brings to our community. First and foremost, it provides direct services to children and families of the highest quality in its pre-school programs. What makes the Lucy Daniels Preschool unique is that it offers children who simply might not make it anywhere else a chance to get back on a normal developmental path through the power of applied psychoanalytic work with the child and his/her family. The Center also offers the primier child evaluation program in the Triangle. It has always served as a beacon for troubled families by providing information and support in parenting and by developing a skilled community of families, clinicians and advocates all focused on raising healthy, happy children. I consider myself very lucky to be a part of the Lucy Daniels Center community and look forward to working with them in the future.

Helping children and their families understand their own emotional and developmental difficulties with clarity and compassion that enables them to overcome these heartwrenching problems in living. The Lucy Daniels Center is one of the few programs in our state that approaches significant human problems in human terms.

The LDC is an outstanding resource for children with behavioral and emotional challenges. As a Pediatrician in the Triangle area, I have referred patients who have benefited greatly from the services and expertise of the staff. The Center fills a great need as many mental health providers in the area do not have the skills and experience to effectively assist preschool age children. I especially appreciate the communication between the LDC and others who are involved with the child's care, and the individualized approach they bring to evaluation and treatment. LDC improves the quality of life for many wonderful children and their families!

The Great!

This Center is the preeminent program in providing care for the young emotionally ill child in our community. It is the leader in advancing a deeply thoughtful approach to difficult children, many of which have been expelled from preschool and kindergarten, and caring for the needs of their parents. It relies heavily on the community for operating funds and no child is turned away because of an inability to pay for the highly sophisticated services they provide. I have worked with families and children who have been treated at the center and can state without reservation that they provide excellent care.

As a developmental and behavioral pediatrician I was very familiar with the LDC when it first started years ago with the high quality - and unique to the Triangle - Early Intervention preschool program. Over the subsequent years as a member of the Board, I have seen the LDC respond to the community's needs by expanding it's services through such programs as the Family Guidance Service and Secure Path. All the time maintaining high quality counseling for families whose children have behavioral and social emotional concerns. The focus on the young child - preschoolers - is particularly special as there are few resources in the area for real, meaningful help for these families. The Triangle community is fortunate to have the Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood supporting the social and emotional development of our young children.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the positive feedback from families I have referred to the LDC. The children and families are treated with genuine respect and care by talented professionals in all the different programs.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

assure sufficient funding streams to continue the valuable services the LDC currently offers as well as to address the changing needs of children and families in the future.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the focus on providing high quality, consistent care for families who face social emotional challanges. They definitely use a developmental approach!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all very knowledgable, helpful and professional. I have always felt that staff and Board members will listen to me - as well as others in seeking to serve families.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand the Early Intervention preschool and Family Guidance program to serve more children and become a model therapeautic program for training both statewide and nationally.

Ways to make it better...

I had had more time to be able to visit the preschool program more and participate in more of the professional educational offerings of the LDC

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

assuring continued funding to go beyond just maintaining current LDC programs.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the LDC is a wonderful non-profit to work with for anyone with a special interest in helping families support healthy social-emotional development in young children.

Lucy Daniels Center is my primary referral center for children and families struggling with mental health issues involving anxiety, depression, and complex and as yet undiagnosed conditions. As a pediatrician in private practice caring for children in the raleigh-chapel hill-durham area of north carolina I have had the privilege of referral young children (3-5 yrs of age) whose lives are filled with such pain and suffering that they are not able to function and enjoy the daily joys and survive the typical obstacles of children. For some of these youngsters the therapeutic preschool and weekly, ongoing therapeutic intervention provided parents has offered an intense intervention that is life changing. For others, preschoolers and children into their early teens, the guidance clinic offers necessary therapeutic support that promotes exploration, understanding and fuel for change required to experience life with greater equilibrium. Regardless of the underlying etiology the Lucy Daniels Center excels in helping children and parents explore, understand, and navigate the unpredictable, discover more stability and ultimately venture out with a sense of safety required to live each day with the balance and serenity required to benefit from and contribute to their world.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

* patients referred for evaluation, intervention and/or referral depending on the findings and resources available * celebrating positive change in patients and parents participating in the therapeutic interventions if offered
