School-Based Programs

Northeast DuPage Family and Youth Services (NEDFYS) has funding through a variety of grants to provide social services and therapy to children, adolescents, and young adults ages 0-24.  


In an effort to meet the goals of these various programs, NEDFYS collaborates with local schools to provide school-based individual and/or group therapy for children and adolescents. Services are provided during the school day, onsite, and typically occur weekly or as indicated. All therapy services are supervised by a licensed therapist (LCPC – Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor or LCSW – Licensed Clinical Social Worker).
