Normal children from infancy through age 36 months are studied in a non-clinical program. The Child and Parent Center at Hall-Mercer offers children, six months to three years of age, the opportunity to be with peers, parents and care givers in an environment that fosters enjoyment and self-confidence.

The child and family component provides experience with emotionally disturbed children, three years to six years of age, in Hall-Mercer’s Therapeutic Activities Program (TAP).

Students will be involved in a variety of settings including infant stimulation in the neonatal nurseries at Pennsylvania Hospital, Infant social stimulation in the center. In addition to participation in case management conferences, readings are assigned and one-on-one interaction with children is available.
