At Harbor House, interviewers specially trained in talking with children and adolescents will speak to your child about the situation.
The process is designed to help your child feel at-ease. Our goal is for your child to leave with a feeling that he/she would come back without hesitation if they ever needed. After the interview, the team will again meet with you to discuss the outcome of the interview with your child. Of course, the entire team will be there to answer any questions you have.
