What's New!

It was a busy summer at The Center for Exceptional Children and Families and we are ready for a beautifull Fall in New England. We have been looking for ways to make it easier for the families we serve to make appointments and share information. To that end, we are excited to announce a patient portal which will allow our families to schedule appointments, check on scheduled appointments, and even receive appointment reminders. The link to the portal is

About CECF

 Our mission is to provide high-quality services rooted in evidence-based care and interdisciplinary collaboration to children and families while furthering the mental health field through training and research. Our staff have specialized training and experience in working with a wide-range of concerns and work with children as young as two years of age. Click below to learn more about our staff.

The Center for Exceptional Children and Families was started in 2016 by three colleagues who saw a need in New Hampshire for high-quality mental health services for children. After training at major academic-medical settings, the founders wanted to promote new and under-utilized services to complement those services already available in the state. This includes specializing in working with preschool-aged children, children with multiple disabilities/disorders, and working with children with severe behaviors including aggression and self-injury. The founders also bring to the state expertise in feeding disorders, toileting concerns, and sleep/bedtime problems.


At CECF, we believe in the power of parents to be powerful agents of change in the lives of their children. That is why we partner with parents to collaboratively set goals and form a team working together to benefit the family and child. We work towards those goals using approaches grounded in science and evaluated through the use of data. We use data to help identify problems, set goals, assess progress, and determine when to end treatment.


We are conveniently located just minutes from downtown Concord with plenty of off-street parking. Our child friendly offices are bright and comfortable to make you and your child feel at home.
