Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $491,892)

Inner Harbour for Children and Families provides residential and community-based services for severely troubled children and adolescents. The therapeutic youth treatment center will provide neurodevelopment services to youth in a number of Inner Harbour's programs. Therapeutic treatment will be used as an intervention for the youth constituents that have criminal offense histories or who are at risk of future criminal offending. In addition to neuro-feedback sessions, the EXCEL Leadership Academy, which is an alternative program to incarceration that admits adolescent males with juvenile delinquency issues, will be an additional intervention strategy. The project seeks to serve approximately 150 youth in residential care for behavioral issues over a one year period and will offer neur-ofeedback sessions three to five times per week for a minimum of twenty sessions per individual youth. Progress will be measured by the number of youth who successfully complete twenty sessions of neuro-feedback and who show improvement in pre- and post-testing in targeted behaviors, including a decrease in problem behaviors. The project will track the rate of reoffense of the youth involved in the program for a year after completion, along with employment and educational status.
