Child & Family

Sound offers supportive and individualized emotional and behavioral health services to children and youth of all ages, from birth to young adulthood.  In addition to supporting individual youth, we seek to work with the family system that supports them, knowing that families provide primary guidance in a youth’s life.  Additionally, we serve parents who have emotional and behavioral health needs and can benefit from family-centered and parenting assistance.  Our specially trained and skilled clinicians understand issues that impact today’s youth and their developmental needs.  They focus on helping youth attain a healthy developmental trajectory by building on their strengths and learning how to master the skills that will help them achieve success.  We offer services at numerous Sound sites, as well as over 200 schools in King County.  We help those we serve to achieve optimal wellness from mild situational stressors to more acute behavioral health issues.  These can include: depression, anxiety, trauma, thought disorders, bipolar disorder, grief, panic attacks, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), learning problems and school failure, running away, interpersonal challenges, and domestic violence and sexual abuse.

Wraparound/WISe Services

Sound provides Wraparound with Intensive Services (WISe) to youth and families where the youth has significant behavioral health needs in our Wraparound Program

The program provides a family-centered and team-based approach to helping children and youth up to 21 years of age.  Community-based services are designed for youth who have a high level of needs, are often in crisis, or where the youth has not responded well to traditional services and will benefit from intensive services that are family-centered and supported with a team of professionals and natural supports.

Our Facilitator team members coordinate with involved youth-serving systems to help families and the other providers support the youth. Our Parent Partner team members can offer the parents/primary caregivers advocacy, support and resources.  A master’s level child and adolescent therapist provides intensive behavioral services. To qualify, the youth must have a mental health diagnosis, have concerning behaviors at home, school, or in the community, and meet clinical criteria for the program. The youth and family must agree to participate together in services.  This program provides services at locations and times that are convenient for youth and caregivers.
