The Wediko Summer Program was first implemented in 1934 as a “fresh air” experience for children from the city whose behavior negated other summer options. From its inception, Wediko has offered a unique opportunity for children to receive intensive special education and clinical services, comparable to hospital-level care, in a non-stigmatizing setting. Today, Wediko continues to focus on at-risk children whose emotional and behavioral symptoms interfere with their ability to function in school, at home, or within the community.
Concerned about continuity of care and education beyond the summer months, Wediko’s School-Based Services was established in 1980 to meet the needs of at-risk children during the school year. School-Based Services offers clinical consultation and direct service to children in approximately 40 public schools in Boston, New York City, and surrounding metro areas.
Started in 1989, the Wediko School provides year-round residential care for those students who need highly intensive services and supports beyond the capacity of most public school systems. Boys with a history of serious difficulties in home and school settings are referred to the program by their schools, families, or by other allied professionals. Today, the Wediko School operates 365 days per year and works with children from a variety of geographic locations nationally as well as members of the ex-patriot community.
In short, Wediko has nearly 80 years of experience developing options and opportunities for underserved children by extending the continuum of services, coordinating supports, and implementing best practice approaches to meet children’s clinical and developmental needs.
