The goal of the Anscomb Program is to support children, youth and their families by evaluating and planning treatment for significant emotional, behavioural, psychological and psychiatric symptoms in order to increase the mental health and functioning of children and youth at home, at school and within their home community.

These may or may not be associated with co-morbid neuro developmental conditions such as ADHD, ASD, FASD, learning disabilities, or other developmental or intellectual impairments.
