Advocating Success for Kids (ASK) Program
Who we serve
ASK serves approximately 250 children in 500 visits per year.
The population is largely urban, with almost 90 percent of patients enrolled in local public schools.
Our population is predominantly Black and Latino (88%), reflecting the population served in these community health center settings.
- Patients treated typically have diagnoses such as learning disabilities, ADHD, disruptive behavior, language delays and a variety of more specific mood or developmental disorders. Almost 15% of children who come to ASK have no diagnosis, but were in need of additional parenting and other social supports.
